    Safe running routes around London


    Packed with both business and tourist traffic, London can be a nightmare for runners. Running along some routes means the risk of being hit by a car, no matter how careful you, are is ever present. There are, however, some reasonably safe running routes around London. Here are some of them.

    The following routes are not only exceptionally scenic, the fact that they see very little to no traffic means they are also considered to be fairly safe. Covering a variety of different distances and elevations, as shown in brackets, these safe running routes around London include the:

    • Thames ‘Escape the City’ Run (distance: 12.3 miles, elevation: 299 ft)

    Staying safe

    Even when not taking these reasonably safe routes, runners can do a great deal to help prevent being involved in a road traffic accident, including, for example:

    • Wearing high visibility clothing
    • Running on the right side of the road, ie. towards traffic
    • Keeping an eye on the road ahead of them to prevent falling in front of traffic due to slips and trips 

    Taking particular care when the necessity to cross roads arises is obviously of utmost importance if personal injuries are to be prevented.
