Explore the vibrant street art of London's East End on a 10km or 5km guided running tour. On the tour, you'll run through the ever-changing canvas of Shoreditch, stopping to admire, photograph and learn about its breath-taking street art. Your guide will help you to identify work from the internationally renowned artists that flock to Shoreditch to embellish its walls - you'll hear about the backgrounds of the artists and the inspiration behind their work. 

Ever wondered: What's the difference between street art and graffiti? What techniques do street artists use? Is it legal? Why's Banksy so important in the street art world? Uncover a hidden world with our street art-obsessed guides, Emma and Vanessa.

"Absolutely amazing fun ... Vanessa was so enthusiastically knowledgeable. I had never realised how much stunning street art was in London over what felt a really short distance. Lots of stops and photo opportunities. I had so much fun I will definitely be booking to join another run."

The tour starts at Aldgate East Station and ends at Haggerston Station. There's an option to duck out at Shoreditch High Street if you're more comfortable running 5k.
Dates and pacing:
It's important for us that everybody feels comfortable on the run. So each date has a guide pace*. Please select the right pace for you:

Half-Walk / Half-Run (mixing up intervals of gentle jogging with walking)

Wednesday 15th September 6:30pm

Steady (if you're comfortable running 10k in 10-12 minute miles)

Thursday 16th September 7pm

Saturday 25th September 11am

Speedy (if you're comfortable running 10k in 10 minute miles and under):

Saturday 18th September 11am

Thursday 30th September 7pm

*Paces are a guide. All runners (usually about 15) on the tour run at the same pace behind the tour guide. The guide will run at the pace of the slowest runner - we don't leave anyone behind. But it is difficult to accommodate your pace if it is wildly slower than the pace you and the rest of the runners on your tour have signed up for. If you usually run faster than the pace you've signed up for, please be prepared to run at the pace of the tour to make the rest of the runners feel comfortable.*

There's no bag drop - sorry. So please pack light and bring a small backpack. This is a casual run, not a race.
