Conversations on Studying Abroad

My Running Routes Around London as a Study Abroad Student

Mar 8, 2023 1:00:00 PM / by Emma Malone

Joggers and runners unite! Emma shows us a fantastic way to get to know the city of London—through running. Check out her routes around the city and glimpses of what she sees along the way.

Come along with me as I run my way through London! One of my favorite ways to get to know a new city is to put my sneakers on, get outside, and run in whatever direction my heart desires—with a little help from Google Maps of course. Included in my TikTok are two separate runs. The first is through Kensington, the neighborhood where my housing accommodation is located. And the second is across the Hammersmith Bridge along the Thames Path to Putney Bridge, where I run into a little problem…large crowds of energetic football fans! But I am not one to speak about fan bases, as mine is arguably the most hostile in the US. Of course, I had to represent the Philadelphia Eagles on my runs through London. I wore an old school T-shirt (kudos to my Dad) for the first run and a beanie (not pictured) for the second.
