    Great fun running in the Olympic Park and remembering the vibes from summer 2012!
    Atmosphere was fantastic: the marshalls were outstanding, encouraging us along the way.
    The venue is easy to find and the course mostly flat so great for a PB.

    Fantastic and well organised. Easy access to parking and all Marshall's were superb. Perfect pb course.
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    Nice course, pretty flat and well kept surface. There was an attempt at atmosphere at the start/finish point but dead the rest of the way round so bring your own fan club or music if you need some motivation. Nice medal, and a t-shirt for £10 (cash only) if you want it. Chip timed and a print out of your time at the end which was good.

    This run in the Olympic park is absolutely amazing. The course, marshals and support around the course is awesome. Incredible views of the park, stadium and surrounding area. The medal was great too. Would definitely recommend.
