Run to the Beat powered by Nike+, London’s only music half marathon, is once again returning to the streets of London on 25 September and promises to be better than ever. Building on the success of last year’s event, which saw Brit award winner Tinie Tempah wowing competitors with his electrifying set, this year has some promising acts in the pipeline which will guarantee to motivate you around the 13.1 mile course.
