A recent article in the London Evening Standard  introduces a new company that provides a unique service for people who want to run home from work. 

Home Run describes its services as “a series of guided group runs home from central London…we even carry your bag!”  Gear is transported by bicycle to a designated finish point and you can pick it up once your group arrives.

It’s a pretty cool concept, but one that probably wouldn’t work in areas outside of large, urban centers.  It would definitely work well in Atlanta – for those people who work and live in Atlanta.  It might even work well for suburbanites if a group run finished at a commuter bus pickup location. 

What do you think?  Would you try run commuting if you were able to run after a long day of work without the hassle of carrying your gear?
