THE BEST RUNNING CITIES
GIVEN its size and population density, London came top in a survey by moneysupermarket.com to decide the UK’s best cities for running events.
The website found Londoners had access to over 170 events at an average cost of £29.39 compared to a national average of £27.55.
But when it came to value of entry to events the best place was Aberdeen – where the number of events was low, at only four, but the average cost was £9.96, £17.58 lower than the average.
The most event-dense location outside of London was Portsmouth, with 34 events during 2016 at an average cost of £28.20.
