The Greenwich Grueller - 4 great reasons to run in London

Thursday, April 21, 2016 - 20:15

The Greenwich Grueller

Distance: 4.14 miles                                                             Est. Time: 30 mins

Start: Royal Observatory Greenwich                                    Finish: Tower Bridge

This arduous run starts with one of London’s most stunning views. The Royal Observatory Greenwich, with its leafy surroundings provide a bucolic starting line, from which to make a descent past the picturesque Old Royal Naval College, designed by Christopher Wren, and take in the nearby juxtaposition of Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron’s award-winning Laban Building. The towering masts of Victoria tea clipper Cutty Sark offer another historic treat for more observant runners as it sits, moored permanently, on the bankside to be enjoyed by the public. The A200 offers a challenging stretch which will load on the lactic acid, but a cheeky detour into Shad Thames takes runners past the Design Museum before reaching the finishing post at Tower Bridge.
