"Escape the City" Thames Run
Running the Thames path away from Central London you will slowly see the city melt away as you run alongside pretty wooded parks. In some places the path changes from pavement to dirt, providing some relief for the joints. You can run as far as you like and take the train back to the start. We selected Richmond as our finish where you can have a bite to eat before you take the tube back.

What Others Are Saying
Run the Thames Path. You can run from the city right out past Richmond. From Putney to Richmond, on the south side of the river, it's a dirt trail most of the way. It's not often you can get a dirt trail in a city like this.
Run down the Thames Path, past Fulham Football Club, Harrods old depository and through some of London's most beautiful parks, ending in Richmond which is a perfect place for a bite to eat by the river.
