The 8.2km route takes us south down the River Lea and into Walthamstow Marshes following some of the smaller and more rugged trails.

At 4km the routes crosses the river and into a small nature reserve before following the towpath to Springfield Park.

The park has the only hill of the run giving some nice views before we rejoin the towpath and return to the start point via Markfield Park.

The route is a mixture of grass/mud trails and paved or gravel tracks.

Trail shoes are advised as the marshes often get wet and muddy.

Meeting points

The meeting point is at Runaway HQ which is based in Bones & Pearl at 60-68 Markfield Road N15 4QA - A 10 minute walk from Seven Sisters station on the Victoria Line

The run will finish back at Runaway HQ where we will then pop next door to LOVEN pizza for some post run food and drinks.

If we can reserve an area we will, however we don’t formally book a table as this often requires a deposit/exact numbers. If the chosen pub/cafe is full or busy we will try somewhere else.
