Fun Run

Tom Voûte Fun Run

Sunday 7 October at 6:30 AM

Run along the scenic banks of the River Thames
A traditional SIOP 5k fun run will be held on the morning of Sunday 7 October at 6:30 AM.

The run will take place along the scenic River Thames, where runners will go past some of London’s most famous landmarks, including Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and Westminster, the London Eye, and the Millennium Bridge.

In addition to running past many famous landmarks, ranging in seniority from Cleopatra’s Needle which dates from 1450 BC to the London Eye, from 1999 AD, the runners will also come across some less well known buildings and monuments that will be of interest as well.

 

The route
The blue line on the map shows the route plan.  Delegates who sign up for the Fun Run will be provided a detailed route plan.

From the starting point, the runners go westward along the river bank as far as the Houses of Parliament.  At Westminster Bridge, runners turn left and cross the River Thames.  The route then returns along the South Bank past the London Eye, The Royal Festival Hall and The National Theatre to Tate Modern, and crossing again the Thames at the Millennium Bridge.

 

Assembly point

The assembly point is just a short walk from the congress venue, on Paul’s Walk, on the North bank of the River Thames, under the Millennium Footbridge. To reach this point, walk down Aldersgate Street from Barbican Station, carry straight on past the large roundabout at the Museum of London into St Martin’s-le Grand, from St Paul’s Station pass behind the East end of the Cathedral, cross St Paul’s Churchyard, and go down the steps to the river bank and the Millennium Bridge.
