'Richmond is my favourite park in London. It's hilly and when you get right to the top you can see Battersea and get a great view of the city.'

'When I was training for the London Marathon, I'd run over Tower Bridge a lot. It's the halfway point of the race and and you see the Tower of London as you come off it. It's cool.'

Hyde Park

'I love running in Hyde Park. It has nice views and it's right in the centre of London. There's a great atmosphere and always a lot people running there.'

St Mary's running track
