Love gin? And running? Join us as we celebrate London's long-term thirst for gin on a fun 10km running tour through the capital.

Over a scenic run, you'll follow a gin-loving guide through all the places that are key to London's thirsty history with mother's ruin. Why's it called dutch courage? When were gin palaces invented? What happened in the various gin crazes that seized our city? Don't worry - you'll stop for breathers as we unravel 3000 years of gin-related history and play games along the run.

Running is thirsty-work so we'll be hydrating with a well-deserved G&T at the finish-line in a distillery or gin-loving city pub. For most tours, the finish-line will be at the City of London Distillery, but it may differ due to opening times (e.g. on Sundays the C.O.L.D. bar is closed, so we will finish in the gin room at Ye Olde Cocke Tavern).

Due to recent world events and restrictions, it's difficult for us to secure a bag drop for this event - so please pack light and bring a back pack. This is not a race!
