LGN 1km loops have been located and measured at several key points around London for use primarily by LGN Run Clubs http://www.lgnwellbeing.com/
These LGN 1km loops serve several key purposes:
Provide comparable LGN standard course for all our Run Clubs
Via monthly time trial assist with tangible fitness progress
Offer guide to tempo for people planning fun runs or PB races
Building confidence for those aiming for initial 5km or 10km
Help fan the flames of Inter LGN Run Club banter
While we at LGN embrace technology with a cuddly bear lost & found like grip, and indeed for identifying our LGN 1km loops we used internet mapping to find best routes with same start / finish area, however when it came to accurate measurement we laughed in the face of GPS and used trusted measuring techniques for inch perfect accuracy, thus while you will have a route map to provide, rest easy knowing we walked every single 1km loop with a manual measuring wheel to make sure each one LGN 1km loop is indeed exactly 1km.
Each LGN 1km loop is measure slowly and accurately by Sports Science qualified craftsman
The Regents Park 1km loop is a beautiful single loop around the Inner Circle whoch sits in the middle of the park and is a mere 20 metres shy of 1,000m aka 1km.

However, if you would like a more detailed pictorial guide to route and advised start & finish points just scroll down below.
We started our loop by the entrance gates opposite Chester Road and just to the left by the below the sign.
The 1km starting point sign with white painted line
The white painted line represents yoru strt point as you launch yourself anti-clockwise
Keeping railings on your left, you start off on very slight downhill
After nearly 500m you will pass the Park Cafe on your left - your latte awaits..
As you crest the slight hill, you will pass the bigger gates opposite York Bridge
As the lactic increases so does the hedge height on your left - only 100m to go
At the gates you started from, go 20m past your start line and the furthest gate entrance is your finish point - hurrah.
We hope you can either join us with our monthly time trials or perhaps use it for a solo rep session, do five and get a 5km time or perhaps as even a guide to tempo for an upcoming race.
Or if you think your company should join the likes of BP, M&C Saatchi & Nike et al and deserves an uber cost effective LGN Run Club, then contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org

Happy running from all the team at LGN
