Now 40 years later, we’ve got a growing portfolio of over 50 nationwide stores and more than eight million people training and racing on the road, track and trails with us. But no matter how far we’ve come, our heritage means London will always hold a special place in our hearts, and we’re keen to share our passion for the city. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Great Runs, who provide runners with the best running routes in some of the world’s most iconic cities, to discover two fantastic runs on our Camden store's doorstep.
The Regent’s Canal is a nearly 200-year-old waterway that links Paddington Basin and Limehouse Basin. Once a bustling hub for business, the canal path is now open for everyone to enjoy and is a great place to run.
The towpath runs alongside the canal for around 8.6 miles and offers pleasant canal views with only a few industrial sections. Winding its way through numerous London neighbourhoods and connecting several major parks and green spaces, it’s easy to up the distance to suit your training needs.
If you’re setting out directly from the Camden Town Store, you need to take Arlington Street or Camden High Street for 0.3 miles north to join the canal path. You can then run for half a mile west to the western end of the path at Regent’s Park or 8 miles southeast to Limehouse & the Docklands.
