A South London run could take you from Camberwell, up towards Denmark Hill, onto Champion Hill past Kings College Halls, down Greendale cycle path to Townley Road then Calton Avenue, through Dulwich Village to Dulwich Park. Come out the Lordship Lane exit of the park, cross Lordship Lane and go up Overhill Road. Turn hard left through Dawson's Hill Estate and across on to Dawson's Hill. From here you get a panoramic view of the whole of London. Then its down Donkey Alley, Goodrich Road, Dunstan's Road to Peckham Rye Park & Common, East Dulwich Road, Dog Kennel Hill back to Camberwell. This would give you about 7.5 miles but if you include Nunhead Cemetery after Peckham Rye Park (via Stuart Road) it's more like 8.5 miles. Undulating, and mixed terrain and scenery. Good lunch time run if you're around Kings College Hospital or Brixton.
