As the UK gets ready for the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in May, City Jogging Tours is offering visitors and Londoners a royal sightseeing tour while they keep fit.
City Jogging Tours, which has offered various running tours across the capital since 2009, has a special Royal London running tour allowing Londoners and visitors the chance to learn some royal history while getting into the spirit of the occasion.
All the tours offer both novice and experienced runners guided tours of London's most iconic sights, with distances ranging from between 5k and 10k on their group tours. Private tours are their most popular option, with the distance tailored to the needs of the runner.
City Jogging Tours' founder, Londoner Hope Sloly, an experienced guide and marathon runner, said:
"Meghan Markle herself is a big running fan, describing it as 'a moving meditation'. I am excited to welcome international and local visitors alike to explore our beautiful city while getting a buzz from running through our iconic streets.
"On the Royal London tour, runners will see Buckingham Palace, Kensington Palace and St James's Palace, as well as hearing facts and fun anecdotes about royal love stories and scandals throughout the route.
"We also run past Horse Guards Parade where you can catch the Changing of the Guard, as well as some of our famous parks which are rich in royal heritage. The tours are designed for all levels, from those completely new to running to those training for endurance events.
"Our guests see so much more than on a traditional walking tour or bus tour, but don't miss out on any of the tour commentary," Hope added.
The Royal London group tours take place on 18th, 19th and 20th May. City Jogging Tours also offers a range of other popular group running tours and events. To book, see https://www.cityjoggingtours.co.uk/event-calendar
City Jogging Tours also offer Customised Tours which are ideal for those who would like to see specific sites, for those needing to run a certain distance while in training, or for individuals, couples and small groups who would like a personalised tour starting at a convenient time. With Customised City Jogging Tours, the tour can even start and finish at the guests' hotel.
