8th October 06 - North vs. South


The North London vs. South London divide exists. Really, it does: it is a marketing tool. It is a dangling carrot. It is the latest way to get Londoners running in this year's Nike 10km Run London event. Last year, Londonist was encouraged to join for far more individual and introspective reasons but this year, we're doing it to settle, once and for all which side of the river is the better London.
While last year the Nike 10km Run London event was all about, well, running the whole of London by holding simultaneous running events in Victoria Park, Hyde Park and Battersea Park, this year all the running will take place in Hyde Park, on Sunday 8 October. Those who sign up and get the official Nike 10km Run London chip for their shoes will be asked to join either the North or South London "teams" and on the day, will run in staggered (and possibly staggering) groups against one another.

The side that records the overall best time (from the collected times of all the individual runners in each team) will be declared the winner. And we will finally be able to move on from the endless debates about North London vs. South London and start a new fight in the pub about East london vs. West London...
