Great Fire of London Running Tour - Half walk/Half/run
--- This event has been cancelled due to ongoing concerns regarding Coronavirus. The race organiser will be in touch with you in due course if you have made a booking for this event. ---
Between the 2nd and 5th September 1666, the old City of London was devastated by a blaze so monstrous it's now remembered as the Great Fire of London.
As we run through the devastation, we'll explore: How did it start? Was it really an accident? Why did the fire rage for so long? How did Londoners dodge the flames? What enabled the fire to finally be put out? What suspicious theories circulated shortly after the fire? The tour ends at the Great Fire of London exhibit at the Museum of London where you'll get a well-deserved snack.
Mixing up short intervals of gentle running with walking. Join this tour if you haven't run 5km in a while. Junior entry for under 18s available.

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.
