London Historical Running Tours

Join Run Back in Time for it's running tour around Clapham Common. 
The (approx.) 6km route will take you back in time. From a sleepy village by a Roman road to a vibrant metropolitan green space, this is a story of a much loved common. From land disputes and highway men to ice skating and underground living, there is more to Clapham that meets the eye. 
Being a running tour , our story would not be complete without telling you more about Clapham's rich heritage of sport. The woman who lived just off the common and refused to believe the official option that running was bad for women's health! And guess what? She became the first woman to run a marathon, finishing where else but Clapham! And let's not forget the FA cup winning football team from Clapham. 
The tour will commence with a warm up and end with cool down stretches. You will have the chance to ask questions as we go and you are also invited to stay and enjoy some refreshments with your group afterwards when Loona and Jules can answer any further questions you may have (not included in the cost of the tour).
We will run at roughly a 6:15 min/per km pace (10 min/per mile). Please check the weather prior to your tour date and dress accordingly. Please only bring what you can carry with you as there is no storage facility.
MINIMUM AGE: 14 years (under 16s must be accompanied by an adult).
