Route description

The race begins at the unique ArcelorMittal Orbit Tower, one of the park's most unique attractions. Runners will then loop around the enormous Olympic Stadium - the site of Mo Farah and Usain Bolt's track heroics - and along the waterfront with views toward the Lee Valley VeloPark.

The route is 2.5k long - 5k runners will complete it twice with 10km participants doing it four times.

Course marshals will be stationed at all crucial points throughout the race and there are refreshment stations on the course.

I found the course quite confusing . There were so many numbers eg 2 ,7 ,9 and at first wasnt sure which way to go.Most of the volunteers were great but there was one who every time i ran by was on her phone. I dont see the point in holding a tambourine and not using it to encourage people.Hope im not being too negative as overall we had a good run.Thanks

This was our first running event post COVID and it was everything we could have hoped for. The whole event felt very safe and well organised. The route was around a beautiful park and was extremely well marked out. The absolute highlight were the volunteers/Marshalls who were all enthusiastic, encouraging and very friendly. The medals were fantastic as was the flapjack (we were also delighted with our Epsom bath salts). Thank you for making our return to racing so positive, we can't wait to come back. Here's to many more finish lines!
