Crime & Punishment Running Tour - Half-walk / Half-run
A new grisly excursion through London's underworld. Along a scenic 10k guided running tour from Tower Hill to Marble Arch, you'll uncover the most gruesome side of London's history, from the remains of notorious medieval prisons, to the sites of ghastly gallows and famous executions. What were the worst crimes committed by Londoners? And how were they punished?
The tour ends by running along the 'Black Parade', which follows in the footsteps of thousands of condemned prisoners as they journeyed from Newgate Prison to the Tyburn Gallows. Which famous criminals took this path? Who managed to escape? And what happened when they got to their destination? Discover London's dark and twisted underbelly.

Knowledgeable tour guide
All runners (usually about 15) on the tour run at the same pace behind the tour guide. The guide will run at the pace of the slowest runner - we don't leave anyone behind. But it is difficult to accommodate your pace if it is wildly slower than the pace you and the rest of the runners on your tour have signed up for.
But if you usually run faster than the pace you've signed up for, please be prepared to run at the pace of the tour to make the rest of the runners feel comfortable.
