Santa in the City starts on the north side of the Millennium Bridge. You will begin by running over the Thames and enjoying the world famous views of Tower Bridge and the Shard.
The route then takes you along the historic south embankment, past the Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, some of London's oldest pubs, like the Anchor and 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!
