A. London has varied weather, and to avoid disappointment we try and run the trails in most conditions. In fact, some ‘challenging weather’ conditions provide great photo opportunities. In rare circumstances the weather means we have to cancel the trails, in which case you receive a full refund (we will also try to inform as soon as possible in this event).
