9 June 2023
Initial meeting point Fyvie Hall, Ground floor, 309 Regent Street, London W1B 2HW
The research marathon is effectively a collaborative walking tour (there is no running involved!).
Doctoral Researchers and members of the Graduate School Community have been invited to submit ‘stops’ for the route which mark a destination that relates to their research. These have been formulated into a route which will be walked by marathon participants on Friday 9 June. At each ‘stop’ the Researcher will then speak about that place, and how it relates to their research project for 5 minutes or so.
The marathon is not only a great way to hear about the research being done by members of the Graduate School Community but is also a great social event and we’d encourage as many of you to join us on the day as possible.
Once we’ve completed the route, the intention is to end up back at Regent’s Street for the Festival Celebration event on Friday afternoon.
We will convene at Fyvie Hall at 11am to begin the Marathon. Please do make sure to wear suitable footwear and remember to bring a packed lunch!
