WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"Our guide (Vanessa) is lovely, passionate about history and running and led us around the East End to the most interesting places regarding the history of women who pioneered social change and rights for women, from Catherine Booth to Sylvia Pankhurst. We hadn't run 10k in quite a while and Vanessa was wonderful at adapting to our pace while encouraging us to keep going. I wholeheartedly recommend Vanessa and Secret London Runs."
I LEARNT A LOT!
"Thoroughly enjoyed the secret run on Sunday - exploring the area I live in a totally new way! Vanessa's knowledge and enthusiasm was fantastic and I learnt a lot. The running part was great and a whole new way of seeing a place I thought I knew very well."
FUN AND INFORMATIVE!
Running was at the pace advertised with regular stops to learn about Power Women in the East End. I can’t say too much without giving things away. However considering I spent two years living in the middle of the route I discovered places I didn’t know existed. Can’t wait to do more runs!
