I’ve set up a new website. It’s called Where to Run in London. Can you guess what its about?
It’s a site to help tourists; people new to London and locals find places to run in London. The idea’s to have all the information you need in one place instead of endlessly hunting around the net.
The aim is that you can follow the runs on the site without the need for a phone. The routes have enough landmarks to follow so that you can leave your phone alone. Although this is not always possible and you may need to sneak a look, the best thing about running is that you can switch off and get the physical and mental benefits.
Running’s my passion and I want to share the fantastic places in and around London to run. Whenever I visit other cities, I take my running shoes with me to get out and see the city. More often than not, I see something interesting – a sight, park or restaurant that I’ll later end up going back to. Running in other cities have sometimes been fantastic due to the setup of the city, such as Valencia or not so good, where there’s too much road traffic and poor pedestrianised areas.
I’ve run all the routes on the site and the photos are all my own (where possible, I will be updating photos as the content grows) unless specified.
I’m continuing to be built out and further useful content added.
The site will be kept up to date with any changes and also new and exciting running things going on in London.
The routes have been added to my Strava profile from where they can be downloaded or followed using your phone with the Strava app.
Please go and take a look at the site and let me know what you think.
