SECRET LONDON RUNS' YULE JOG IS THE PERFECT JOLLY EVENING IN YOUR RUN-UP TO CHRISTMAS.

Love Christmas and want to kick-start your festive cheer? Join us on a magical 5k guided running tour of London's Christmas lights. 

Every night in December, the streets of London are transformed by a series of world famous light displays, twinkling trees and joyful markets. In small groups of runners of a similar pace to you, you'll be led by a Christmas-loving guide to jingle through the 2019 highlights, with plenty of time for pho-ho-hotos.

On this expertly-planned route, starting at Covent Garden (the epicentre of London's illuminations), we'll marvel at the lights of Carnaby Street, Regent Street, Seven Dials, Oxford Street, Trafalgar Square and many more places you may or may not have heard of. 

Of course, every runner gets a santa hat at the start of the run. And if you were hoping for a Silent Night, you’re out of luck: we’ll be playing all the Christmas classics along the route from our portable speakers. Sing-a-long optional. Fancy-dress encouraged. We’re history lovers at Secret London Runs, so we’ll also be pointing out a few places along the way that you might not have noticed, which tell the secrets of Christmas traditions around the world.

The tour ends at Oxford Circus Station after about 80 minutes of festive fun with a seasonal snack. Your tickets include: a 5k run, Christmas lights a-plenty, a history-loving guide, small groups, digital photos, santa hat, and a festive snack. Tickets are £13 with earlybird until the end of October and £15 thereafter.

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:

Gentle Jingle (if you're comfortable running 5k in 12-13 minute miles): 

  • Sunday 1st December 5pm
  • Saturday 7th December 5pm
  • Tuesday 10th December, 7pm
  • Thursday 19th December 6pm


Merrily Medium (if you're comfortable running 5k in 10-11 minute miles):

  • Sunday 8th December 5pm
  • Friday 20th December 6pm

Please note that we have a 10k option available - there are more dates for this option, and faster paces due to its popularity.

*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.*
