What you'll do
Get set for a running tour of central London’s iconic sights and discover more about some of our heroes. Your experienced tour guide will lead you on a run whilst stopping off at places and people relevant to the role that brave Red Cross volunteers played during WWI and WWII. Together, we’ll discover what a famous suffragette, Florence Nightingale and Queen Victoria all have in common. We’ll meet at the Florence Nightingale statue in Waterloo Place for a short warm up before setting off on our 6.5km run. Suitable for both experienced runners and beginners alike, you’ll love our themed tour!
The British Red Cross have teamed up with London City Runners to host these one-of-a-kind jogging tours. Your history-loving tour guide for these unique events will be Tim, Farid, Katherine or Alfie. "We’re all marathon runners with a passion for London and for sharing incredible stories about our city! We’re all experienced tour guides and we’re hoping to help raise lots of money for a great cause. Whether you’re new to the city or a local, we look forward to meeting you!"
About the organisation
British Red Cross
The British Red Cross helps millions of people in the UK and around the world get the support they need if crisis strikes. We’re part of the global Red Cross and Red Crescent movement, and we believe in the power of kindness. From hiring a wheelchair or dealing with loneliness, to adjusting to life in a new country- we’re there when we’re needed. Every pound we receive will help fund this support.
This is a social impact experience where 100% of what you pay for this experience goes to British Red Cross.
