Great FKT run with world 24hr legend Damian Carr. Damo was staying over the river and a brave passage through Rotherhite tunnel meant that Wapping station was a great meeting point.

An early Saturday morning is possibly the best day and time to do this run - when you can fly down the middle of roads rather that stick to the uneven paths.

You go past some epic London history - 16th century pubs along the river

Past some great waterways and boats.

Majority of this run is up the Lea Valley - which after the Olympic Park is the same route as the Lee Valley 53 mile FKT

Unsupported attempt but plenty of places to stop if you want to take a more leisurely run. Pavillion in Victoria Park is the best

Finish is next to two of the best new craft breweries in London - Beavertown is the best
