LONDON BOUNCES BACK
10K RUNNING TOUR
There is no city as resilient as London - a place that has overcome tragedy after tragedy; the capital that has reinvented itself time and time again in the face of adversity.
Join Secret London Runs for a brand new running tour about London's incredible ability to bounce back from disaster. You've probably heard of the Blitz, the Great Fire and the Black Death. But what about the Great Stink? Or London's Beer Tsunami? Now more relevant than ever, run an uplifting 10km through our resilient capital, stopping at places that give us hope for a swift and timely recovery.
In order to comply with government guidelines, spaces are limited to 12 guests. Please book early to guarantee your preferred date/time.

ENDS AT: London Bridge
DISTANCE: 10km / 6 miles
TIME: Approx 2 hours (but depends on pace and number of questions)
WHAT YOU'LL SEE: A plethora of places linked to London's disasters and recoveries. The site of London's beer Tsunami, the pump where the cause of cholera was discovered, London's forgotten plague pits, the memorial of Boudicca's Revolt and much more.

This is a brand new tour, so here are some reviews of some of our other popular Secret London Runs tours!
BEST FUN RUNNING I'VE EVER HAD!
"Did a 10k running tour for beginners with my twin sister (who doesn't like running). Had the most fun day and laughed from start to finish - completely forgot we were getting a bonus workout too! Can't recommend enough (from a runner and a non-runner!). Would give more than 5 stars if it was possible."

GREAT WAY TO SPEND AN EVENING
"My friend and I went for our first Secret London Run. It was a great night out - Claire our guide was wonderful. I was worried before I went about managing to keep up with the pace of the run, but they do give you options for how fast you normally run and Claire made sure everyone was comfortable as we went along. Lots of interesting information and I would definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys a bit of running and some history. I will definitely be booking another tour with them!
