Let’s kick-off by exploring the scenery that never gets old. All the key landmarks are marked in the official 2019 map. Runners get to pass some of London’s historic and iconic landmarks including Trafalgar Square, Big Ben and the London Eye across the River Thames.

“The ASICS London 10K route has to be one of the most iconic closed road running routes in the country, taking in central London sights such as Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, Victoria Embankment, Westminster Bridge & Parliament Square to name just a few!”

Liam Worthy, ASICS London 10K Route Manager

It will be like running on your own version of a monopoly board as you pass well-known places within the City such as Regent Street, Trafalgar Square and the Embankment. Whilst also capturing glimpses of greenery with the Parliament Square Garden.
