The Santa in the City route:

Your 5km Santa Run will begin on the south side of Millennium Bridge, in front of The Founders Arms and just outside the Tate Modern. Here you will be running along the Thames and enjoying the world-famous views of Tower Bridge and the Shard.

As the route takes you along the historic south embankment, past the Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, you will also see some of London’s oldest pubs, like the Anchor, and then will go past Borough Market.

You will cross over Southwark Bridge and hug the north embankment running towards the Tower of London and Tower Bridge.

You will then return through the City, back over Southwark Bridge and towards St Paul’s Cathedral, via Millennium Bridge to the finish line on St Peter’s Hill, completing a truly iconic route!
