About this event

Race around the Olympic Park's ArcelorMittal Orbit Tower in the lead up to Christmas in this speedy 10k. This consistently flat course is a great event for runners looking to shave seconds off those PBs. Come for the finisher's medal and make this monthly race a regular event on your calendar.

Your organiser

The Race Organiser creates outstanding opportunities for people to bring out their best run, swim or cycle performance.

We seek out the most inspiring and rewarding locations, develop race routes and event formats, and create a brilliant atmosphere and race day experience – offered at the best possible value. We don’t think it’s ok to ask people who are aspiring to do amazing things to pay huge sums of money, so we charge as little as we can afford, rather than as much as we can get away with.

Didn't even really think about the fact that we would be running around the stadium for the Oympics but I have to say it was just great fun - it made my day. The organisation was also great, really enjoyed this one… read more

Route description
Route description

This is a lapped course, with participants completing 3 laps across the tarmac and hard gravel within the park. This looped nature of the route allows participants to fully engage in their surroundings and appreciate the immensity of the games.

During the race, runners will have the opportunity to pass by London Olympic Stadium - where Usain Bolt lit up London 2012 - as well the Lee Valley VeloPark and the ArcelorMittal Orbit.

Please always be vigilant of other runners, spectators, dogs, cyclists and other users of public footpaths and rights of way.

Kinda loved it. Really suprised at how efficient these things can be given the amount of people there. Not the best atmosphere but I guess its a smaller race with not many spectators. But very impressed overall!

Perfect winter day for a run. A well organised race with a flat, scenic route. Great encouragement from the marshalls and a good goody bag at the end. Lots of friendly competition and run with a nice atmosphere.

Thanks for organising a great 10k event. Its a fast 10k and I only marked it down by one star due to it being 3 Laps. That said, scenery is lovely and its brilliantly organised. We did the mital slide afterwards and paid 2 to shower at the Olympic pool ! Made for an amazing Saturday morning!!
