Go Out


When it comes to capital cities and running, few places have as much of an emotional tie as London. Whether you’ve run in the world famous marathon or simply enjoyed a one-off jaunt in the greenest major city in Europe, everyone seems to have their park and their own route.

With such great opportunities to explore comes great expectations, and often a small sense of bewilderment. It can take you 30 minutes to cover three miles on public transport, so why not ditch the tube stops and red buses to lace up your Sauconys and run there.

When running in London, it’s impossible not to be caught gawping at the sights – from the bright lights of the city to the bold brickwork of some of the world’s most famous buildings. Discover many of the city’s gems through the eyes of three locals…


Old Truman Brewery

Once home to London’s biggest brewery, the Old Truman Brewery is now a hub of independent shops, bars and restaurants – just off Brick Lane.

Hoi Polloi and Ace Hotel

With a name that means “the people” it’s hard not to want to join the pack and dine here. Wood-panelled, bright lights, stylish company, this is the perfect pre-party eating location.

Situated in the suitably sharp area of Shoreditch, mains include the exquisite Braised short rib and baked polenta gnocchi.
