Travel back to Whitechapel 1888 and experience the "Autumn of Terror" on this 10km running tour of London's East End. As you run through the back-alleys of London's East End, your guide will take you through the stomping ground of London's most notorious killer. Unlike walking tours which are restricted to a specific part of the area, we'll run to each murder location in order, so you'll really feel like you're running in the footsteps of Jack the Ripper.

As we unravel the tragic events,  you'll also visit places that have survived the revival of the area to learn more about the lives of 19th century East Enders (especially the victims, so often reduced to mutilated corpses when reliving these events). After you're all up to speed on the murders, the investigation and the victims, we'll have just enough time to explore a number of theories for that age-old question: Who Was Jack the Ripper?
