This is a lapped course, with athletes completing 3 laps of the route on the tarmac and hard gravel paths within the park. The looped nature of the route allows participants to fully engage in their surroundings and appreciate this epic Olympic setting.
Runners will loop around the immense Olympic Stadium, now home of West Ham United before heading back to the river with views toward the Lee Valley VeloPark - the home of much of Team GB's 2012 success.
Please always be vigilant of other runners, spectators, dogs, cyclists and other users of public footpaths and rights of way.

Perfect for a pb
Good for beginners
This is a great 10K course for anyone looking at an intermediary route. Unlike 10K routes in Victoria Park or Battersea Park the elevation profile of the route is quite pronounced so expect to be going up and down for most of the course. This if you are a beginner in 10K runs maybe leave this on the side until you tackled the more flat 10K routes first.In terms of experience, it was very organised, we were allowed to access the toilet facilities of the park (rather than portaloos) and the process of getting numbers and bag drop were super fast and efficient.The medal also looks nice (sort of a yellow round underground station shape).Last but not least, the thing I enjoyed the most was that this was a dedicated 10K race without other distance races happening at the same time. This made the whole course very clear to follow and there was very little crowding in the lane across the race (perhaps with some exception of the first 120 seconds of the race).Overall, this is a highly recommended race for intermediate 10K runners.
4.7Did the 10k in 2021
Last minute course change meant that we ran an extra half a km. A bit of a surprise! I believe this was beyond the organisers' control. Otherwise all clearly set out in info received in advance.
