I'm away with work next week and will be staying overnight in Islington. I quite fancy a 2-3 mile run in the morning. By the looks of it, there's not much greenery about so it will be along pavements, although Regents Park is a couple of miles away so I could get bus/tube there and round around I suppose.
Does anyone know the area? Any ideas?
you can run along the Regent's Canal towpath. At Angel - you can either run towards LImehouse basin or west towards King's cross and Camden.
Sussex Runner: No, I may only need a croissant and juice, but I want the Full English!
not a real runner: Ah, a towpath, never thought of that. Thanks for the tip.
Cheers guys, I've just had a look at Regent's Canal on Google etc and it looks superb. The west end of the Islington Tunnel is quite close to my hotel so I can run the whole way.
I'm now looking forward to my work trip a great deal more than I was 24 hours ago.
Done it! Ran from my hotel to the west side of the Islington Tunnel, then went as far as Regents Park, did a very short cicruit in Regents Park then ran back.
All went well except my gps ran out of juice so I'll go on mapometer later to work out how far it was. Really nice place to run, but I have to say that none of the runners I met seemed inclinedto acknowledge my presence in the slightest - that's London I suppose.
Re the croissant/full English decision: I had a banana from Tesco Express on the way back, then porrige and bacon on toast.
First time I've run on a work trip and will definitely be doing it again, It set me up brilliantly for the day.
