PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT US - AND WE LIKE IT
In 2019 Runner's World Magazine featured a 2-page interview with our founder, Vanessa. Our murder mystery runs have also regularly featured in their Events Highlights.
BBC Radio 4's You and Yours came along to our last murder mystery challenge event, Secret Half in the North. They interviewed our founder, Vanessa, as well as our runners mid-way through the event. We think the angle was supposed to be "isn't this a rip-off" but skip to 20 minutes and 30 seconds to hear our customers defending the concept and rave about their experience.
We've been absolutely blessed with Time Out regularly featuring us in their top 10 things to do at the weekend. But in February 2019 journalist Grace Goslin came along to our Sex and Scandal tour and published this fabulous write-up.

Cosmopolitan featured us at number 2 of their winter date ideas. And yes, they did use the words "bloody brilliant jogging tours".
In 2017, the Metro ran a feature on the Secret Gin Run. "That's right, a mini marathon around London fuelled only by Dutch courage and juniper".
Alix Fox, BBC Sex Correspondent, joined our Sex and Scandal running tour and spoke about it in her award-winning podcast series The Modern Mann. Skip to 49 minutes to hear Alix recalll the highlights of the tour.
Usually known for their video recipes, Tastemade got in touch in 2018 wanting to film our Sex and Scandal running tour. Who were we to argue? We had a blast filming the tour and the video has had 43k views on Facebook.
The Guardian running blog came along to a Run for Your Life! Ghost Tour back in October 2017 and published this amazing write-up of the event.
Back in February 2017, we loved taking fitness blogger Zanna Van Dijk on an early morning sightseeing run around Westminster and Royal London. We were delighted to read her glowing summary of her Secret London Runs experience in the Health & Wellbeing article: "How Zanna Van Dijk Stays Fit In The City".
Paul Stanworth from the BBC interviewed Secret London Runs guide Ronnie for her training tips on the London Marathon in April 2019. Ronnie was interviewed alongside members of the cast of Eastenders who were preparing for the race.
