Welcome to the latest LGN measured 1km London course, as opposed to our traditional 1km Loop, we broke the mould this and went for a super simple out-n-back course, yes just 500m from point A to point B, followed by quick turn and dash back from B to A.
This course has be created to provide more confidence to our many LGN Run Club members for whom a 1km monthly run can be daunting, we hope this might make the distance far more compact and bijou.
Who needs freinds and family cheering you in training when the Queen might just be routing for you behind bullet proof net curtains?
The measuring tools of our trade, these elegant surveyor's wheels laugh in the face of baby faced GPS technology
Your 1km starts with your back to this majestic building as you head towards Admiralty Arch
The large white flag holding lampost on right handside is your official 1km start point
Yup, there she blows in all her lampost majesty - get ready for some serious Pall Mall lactic love
And you are OFF! - heading down the suprmely flat and smooth surface towards Trafalgar Square
As you pass the main gate at St James's Park you have already covered a heady 286 metres
And this tree opposite the statue of the Queen on other side of the road is your 500m turn around point
And as you will be on the other side of the road we thought you might like a close up of the statue, nice, no?
And upon the turn you simply head back to the Palace and stop at your original lampost
We look forward to seeing some cracking LGN Run Club 1km improvements posted below very soon.
Happy running from all the team at LGN!
