Running The Vanguard Way

Who knew London had such a brilliant trail that's ripe for fastpacking and hiking?

In the latest instalment in his Youtube series, OM editor Will attempts to run from the edge of London’s urban sprawl down to England’s southeast coast on a two-day fastpack along the Vanguard Way. Along en route, he discovers woodland trails, country pubs and suffers from a rookie error he made when packing for the trip.

You can view Will’s Vanguard Way route on the komoot app. The shoes he mentions are the La Sportiva Mutants which are available at and last but not least, here’s some more info about that Wales 190 challenge Will is planning.
