Meeting points

London Kings Cross

Please organise train travel individually in order to minimise social contact.

Route start

Meet us outside Deli Stop, which is located on the east side of the train station.

Train also calls at - Finsbury Park

Please meet the Runaway team at the meeting point 15-20mins prior to departure.

There is paid (£2.80) parking available directly at the station

We will organise any post run refreshments closers to the run. However due to restrictions and the cold weather it is likely we will not be able to do anything as a group.

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.
