I opted for the Canary Wharf to Waterloo route which is about 8km along the river - one of my favourite places to run in the city, especially on a hot day!
The route started at Westferry Station which is just outside Canary Wharf and, unless you know where you are going, a little hard to find! If Laureen hadn't shared a heads up about the meeting point, I might have got very lost!
Safely arrived at the meeting point I was given a Home Run T-shirt and wristband (to identify me as part of the group) and my bag was given an ID badge so that it didn't get lost. A quick register was taken and we were off along one of the prettiest routes in the city!
