Active travelers and running enthusiasts will love this fast-paced tour that combines keeping fit and one of London’s most iconic activities: the Changing of the Guard. Most tourists stand around for hours (often in the cold) waiting for the ceremony, only to end up not seeing very much. On this tour you will run between the three palaces and two barracks where the performances take place. You won’t miss a thing.
  • See more than most tourists do on a running tour
  • Have fun on a group tour; private runs are available on request
  • A fun way to see the sights while getting active
  • Receive a re-energizing snack at the end of the run

I ran this tour with Vanessa. She was amazing! Any runner out there should do this tour. The running was a fair workout. It can be a sprint for a seasoned runner or a walk / jog for one not. The actual chasing of the Guard was so much fun.i was skeptical from the title if it was going to about just following them through the streets. IT WAS SO MUCH MORE! I learn so much about the queens guard,who they are,the uniforms,the history, ALSO behind the scene stories of a Goose that stood Guard, a greyhound mascot,a murder and a ghost.The horses have stories to be told too. I would run with Vanessa again! Anyone who enjoys a run should book with this group on any tour.They were professional and on time. The communication was excellent and friendly. I would recommend this tour to anyone.
