Regents Park is a popular green space, so while we measured its Inner Circle 1km Loop many years ago we at LGN thought it would be a good idea to measure an additional 1km route in the same park.
Welcome to Regents Park and welcome to your LGN 1km running fun
With warm down views like this why run anywhere else?
We take our measuring seriously at LGN, a surveyor's wheel has no GPS satellite issues hindering accuracy
Course map and route location:
Please see link to Map My Run route of course - http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/151608941
Pictoral photo based blog of the 1km course
The 1km loop starts in the south east corner of the park, majority of people will access it by walking past iconic fountains
(please see Map My Run link above for detailed route location)
As you walk past the fountain you will come to path junction & new tarmac in the middle marks start point
From this angle you can see tarmac colour change & just behind sign is a childrens playground
Not strictly relevant, but as we caught a fellow runner mid-stride we thought it worthwhile showing the closest gate entrance
You stand on the new tarmac start point, your 1km is measured anticlock-wise and is a triangular course finishing 59.2m to your left
Lovely straight start to your 1km, but get ready for hard left hand turn in about 150m
Here is your hard right turn, you are now taking the right fork and have only two thirds of your 1km remaining
This image provides little information other than food for thought during session of importance of seasonal ebb & flow..
And you have now arrived at final hard turn as you head back to your original start point
The rubbish bin is significant as this is the 900m point, just 100m to go!
The 1km end point is maked by what looks like a tar-based foot print in the path
As additional reference point the 1km end point is in line with lamp post outside house number 17 on outer circle
Good luck with your training, we hope the 1km measured loop can assist your running and if you think your company should join the likes of BP, Coca Cola & M&C Saatchi et al by using an LGN Run Club for employee health please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org
