Running routes: London’s top 5

Ever wanted inspiration or ideas on where to run in London? Check out MR's interactive running map below:

To help both beginners and long-term runners, Men’s Running is creating an interactive map in each of the UK’s major cities, armed with their top five running routes. ┬áThe beauty of this is that we want you to be the ones to tell us where these routes are.

We’ve started it off with London, and Liverpool is next. Can you help us? Get in touch – @Mensrunninguk

The Thames View (Blue line)

If you like central London, then this is for you. Busy and dense areas with the Thames offering you a bit of space. If you’re into your history it’s not bad either, starting across London Bridge before returning to the station, you will pass the Tower of London, run over Tower Bridge and alongside the HMS Belfast.

Perfect for: Beginner – Medium

Best time: Lunch or after work running

The Royal Route (Green line)

Waterloo is London’s busiest station, so we know a lot of you coming through will be looking for a quick running route. Enjoy some of the best bridges in the capital as well as tackling The Mall and feeling like Prince Harry himself.

Perfect for: Beginner – Medium

Best time: Early morning or late evening

The Clapham Common Run (Black line)

Another popular route among the Men’s Running staff. Clapham is known as one of the trendier places in London, so why not get fit there. Starting at Stockwell, enjoy both grass and concrete in the South of the capital.

Perfect for: Medium

Best time: Both weekdays and weekends

Thames Tow Path (Red line)

Ran by all here at Men’s Running. Starting at Hammersmith bridge, get as close to the Thames as possible and take in the breeze! Can you beat our time? Let us know how you get on – @Mensrunninguk

Perfect for: Medium

Best time: Early morning or lunch

Richmond Park Run (Yellow line)

A big run for a big park. This route is perfect for those of you wanting to get into shape doing long distance running. What better place to do it than Richmond Park.

Perfect for: Medium to experienced

Best time: Evening or weekend.
