Best running routes in London
London is one of the best cities in the world for runners, so lace up and hit those pavements: here are our top ten running routes to help you find your way.
Lea Valley: Tottenham to the Olympic Park
Heading south from
Tottenham Hale though the Tottenham Marshes and alongside the rowing clubs of the
Lea Valley, you almost forget that you’re in the capital. This route follows
the Lea River right the way down past canal boats and Hackney Marshes, before
ending next to the 2012 Olympic stadium in Stratford. If you value the journey
rather than running in circles, it’s a great excuse to explore some of London’s
less famous footpaths, and a rapidly evolving part of the capital.
