Chase the Moon Olympic Park - Early January

Route description
Route description

The Olympic Park route allows you to experience the immensity of the London 2012 Olympic Games. You will have the chance to see first hand the spectacular Olympic Stadium as well as the iconic Arcelormittal Orbit designed for the Games.

The course is a looped route, which means participants get more than one opportunity to take in the breath-taking surroundings.

5k runners will complete the track two times, with 10k runners doing it four times.

Did the 10k in 2020
Shame the course was circa 160m short of 10k. I even ran wide on the corners to make up the distance.
