Designed initially for our LGN in-house corporate club at Mercer, this 1km loop is flat & swift.
Welcome to our Tower Bridge 1km running route as used by our LGN's Mercer Run Club
We take our measuring seriously at LGN, a surveyor's wheel has no GPS satellite issues hindering accuracy

Welcome to Shadwell Basin with the Shard as your navigational cue
This 1km loop is an out & back course along Shadwell Basin and the man-hole cover above is the start point!
(Vaughan Way E1 is the bridge over the canal but please see Map My Run link above for detailed route location)
Here is your man-hole cover 1km start & this is your view as you set off
You are just running straight ahead for nearly 250m at the start
And after approx 250m you follow left hand bend (only option!)
As you turn the bend you now have 150m straight before following canal to the right
You have covered 400m as you turn right & are just 100m away from turning back point
Almost at the turn point... you are looking for third metal fence post in between the two weirs you can see in the canal
The third metal post between the weirs is your 500m turn point (indentifiable by red trim on house behind it)
And now you turn on the spot and run back the exact same 500m
As you fly back please remember the double rule of no swimming or leaving dog poo...
And when you see the Shard you know you have less than 250m to go
And welcome back to your man-hole cover finishing point - 1,000m exactly!
