Sunday 8th October 2017
start between 11am and 12pm
Your team will meet in a secret location in the swinging sixties East End where we'll get you up to speed on the 'incident'.
Then you'll take to the streets to find witnesses, gather clues and interrogate suspects.
By the time you've solved the murder, you won't even have realised you've clocked up 13.1 miles.

outdoor things to do
Do I have to run?
Most of our events are suitable for runners and walkers. However, with the length of this event, we'd only recommend competing if you intend to run at least half the way. Check out the rest of our events for other walking options.
How many people per team?
You can go it alone, in pairs, or in groups of up to 6.
Do I have to come with a team?
Most people arrive in a team (you don't have to register together - just turn up on the day) but you're welcome to turn up and ask us to team you up - we're a friendly bunch!
Do I have to arrive at the start time?
No, you'll need to start based on your speed to help us with logistics:
11-11:15am: For those expecting to do some walking along the way.
11:15am-11:40am: Gentle joggers - those expecting to plod their way round
11:40-12pm: Confident half marathoners - those likely to go at pace.
What do I need to bring?
Yourself, running kit, a phone with data, a backpack for clues (1 per team), your ticket (on your phone is fine) and any additional sustenance you might need en route.
Is there a water station?
About half-way round there'll be a water station and things to help you refuel.
Are there prizes?
Oh yes. Announced on the day at the after-party.
The secret start/end location will be in a pub where you can eat, drink and compare notes with other teams.
