A self-guided EU-themed running tour


Run a 5k or 14 mile self-guided running tour and explore the entwined history of Europe and London. You don't need a guide, just follow the directions, use the maps and read some facts at each stop.

Two years ago, on the night of the referendum, I stayed up writing this tour, assuming it would be a celebration of our continued membership of Europe. As the night went on, it became clear that it was to become more of a requiem.

Now, with tensions rising on both sides, it's more important than ever to recognize the shared heritage we have with Europe; and what better way to do that than on the run?!

The concept is simple: let's run between as many road names named after EU member countries, and learn about the shared history.

I hope you enjoy it!
