Does September 2024 seem like a long way off? We thought so do, so we'll be holding a 1-day "Sports Day" with a variety of running/walking tours and other events in May/June. Watch this space.

SONJA BREUSS, VIENNA
"More than just a running event, the Secret London Runs Festival was a fantastically inclusive social event for both runners and walkers. The perfect combination of active daytime events and evening entertainment. What makes Vanessa brilliant is her ability to make everyone feel welcome and share something new with even the most knowledgeable Londoners and history fans"
"Another fabulous fun filled and educational event from Secret London Runs. This is quickly becoming the highlight of my running year and already looking forward to the next one."
"It's like the high of doing a big run with the euphoria spread over a long time!"
"Thank you so much for being so inclusive - I had an amazing time. Thank you to everyone that helped and encouraged me. What a fantastic group. I loved everything!"
"What a weekend. I left exhausted but exhilarated."
Since its debut last year the "Secret London Run Festival" is one of my events of the year, I love running and I always had a passion for history, so for those three days of the year I feel like I belong.
"For the second year running the festival weekend has been thoroughly enjoyable. The dates for next year are in my calendar already!!"
