The route is essentially the perimeter of Greenwich Park which avoids crossing roads:

We run westwards down Nevada Street, turn left at the Rose & Crown onto Crooms Hill, continuing onto General Wolfe Road. We then turn left at Shooters Hill Road, heading along the path to turn a slight left into Charlton Way to run just outside the Park. We turn left at the war memorial on the eastern end of Greenwich Park to then descend Maze Hill.

At the foot of Maze Hill we turn left into Park Vista to then run westwards, turning right into Park Row. Around 50m from the end of Park Row turn we turn left through the gates, in front of the Queen’s House (Pictured below), following the path westwards until we reach King William Walk. If any of the area is closed please head onto the A206 Trafalgar Road and then left (westwards) towards King William Walk where you will arrive back at St Mary’s Gate.
