London Monopoly Run v2.0 - Saturday 11/04/2015!

Back by popular demand - the London Monopoly Run will take place again on Saturday 11th April 2015.

Starting at 11am at the Seymour Leisure Centre, Seymour Place, London W1H 5TJ ( ahort walk from Euston Station), the route is a 15.7 mile trip around every single location of the traditional British Monopoly board!

The route is a spectacularly scenic journey around London, taking in many of the iconic buildings and locations. Be prepared to see London as you've never seen it before!

  • The Seymour Leisure Centre have kindly allowed us to use their lockers and showers (a small charge is made for these.)
  • A small charge of £5 per runner is made for a special one-off memento!
  • The run will be at a very gentle pace, with lots of time for photos opportunities etc.
  • Please do bring a camera along as there will be a photo competition en route! (with prizes!)

You can read a report from the original run in 2012 written by our Social Secretary Karen here
