London is a pretty special place to run in, but usually races tend to be in the spring/summer months. Next year on 1st February 15,000 runners are going to take to the streets of London for a new event, London Winter Run. The race will take in some key landmarks including the Eye, St Pauls, Big Ben and more!
To make the race even more ‘wintery’ there are also going to be snow zones along the route, I’m really excited to see what these will be like! The race is being run on closed roads and is ideal as a winter race to keep things interesting whilst your marathon training, will be a nice break from my Brighton training!! It looks like its going to be a really fun race! The race is being organised with Cancer Research UK so they are encouraging sponsorship.
Most importantly the event will include a medal, I’m super excited to see what this will be like, snow themed? There will also be chip timing (important for us running geeks ;-)) and key features such as a bag drop, warm up and polar bear hugs at the finish, how cool?! I will definitely be seeking out one of those!
