About the event
We're so excited to be jingling with Zero2Hero on this year's Christmas Lights Running Tour!
Every year the streets of London are transformed by a series of world-renowned light displays and twinkling trees. On a brand new route for this year, your Christmas-loving guide will lead you through the 2021 highlights on a beautiful 5k or 10k tour.
There'll be plenty of time for pho-ho-hotos and a little festive history along the way. And of course, we'll be playing festive tunes as we go-ho-ho!
Pace: This is not a race. Nobody is aiming for a PB as we jingle through the Christmas lights. We run at a pace that everyone is comfortable with - and no one gets left behind. You'll be able to choose to join the 5k or 10k tour each of which will split into two groups on the night based on your preferred pace.
What to wear: For environmental reasons, we’re not providing santa hats this year. But we would LOVE you to wear your own long-lasting festive hat and as much Christmas fancy dress as you wish for the tour. We’ll be giving a prize for the best-dressed person on the night. There’s no such thing as ‘too festive’.
