The Best Running Routes In London

If you've grown bored of treadmills or standard laps-of-the-local-common, perhaps it's time to mix up your run routine. To help you out, we enlisted the assistance of adidas Runners London captains James Poole and Claudi Schroegel, who used their insider knowledge of where the best places to run in London are to create some excellent new running routes.
Fancy a mid-run market stall browse? We've got it covered. Feel like taking your run out of the city? No problem. With routes that span the whole of London starting at 5k and going all the way up to 15k, there's a route for everyone. Each one packed with all sorts of sights to see and some super enticing pit-stops.
We've included links to the route on the Strava GPS app too, so you can track yourself and avoid any unplanned detours.
Make sure you check back to this post regularly because we'll be adding more routes over the next few months to keep things interesting.
Oh, and if you're in need of some new running shoes before you hit the road, why not treat yourself to a pair of the adidas UltraBOOST X?
Happy running!
