East London is at its best in this recurring race through Victoria Park. The course is pan flat, so it's a great race if you're chasing a PB. Victoria Park is one of London's nicest parks and this is a great way to explore it. Come for the finisher's medal and locally famous homemade flapjacks.

There will be water provided at the halfway point of the race (5K in), and there will also be water available at the finish. We have also ordered some flapjacks and fruit for when you finish. We will also be giving out a brand new finisher's medal!

We will have a photographer taking a few snaps of the race and they will be on Facebook after the race so be sure to check it out and see if you can spot yourself.

Raceday Logistics

The race will begin at 7:00 pm.

Make sure to leave some time between your arrival so that you can collect your number and check your bags.


In terms of spectating, this park couldn't be any better. The fields are open and every area of the park is accessible to see people running round.


We will have a secure area where you can leave your baggage. We recommend you bring as little baggage as possible. Your baggage tag is attached to your race number, you simply tear it off and attach to your bag. To collect, show your number to the baggage tent staff and they will help you find your baggage.

There will be plenty of portaloos brought on site for the event.

    Did the 5K in 2019

    RunThrough always put on such great events and this was exactly that. The course was well marshalled and the race information was very clear before race day. Results were online as soon as we finished and the pictures were uploaded before I even got home. WELL DONE RUNTHROUGH

    Did the 5K in 2019

    Very quick course which I ran a PB on and the post race goodies were fab. Well organised and super friendly volunteers
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    A drizzly evening at Victoria Park but a fab event. Amazing organisation as always from the RunThrough team.
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    Another well-organized event by RunThrough. This is a quick course for PBs, and the post-race snacks are always great (those home-made flapjacks are gold)
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    Super friendly marshals, great snacks post race and an accurately measured course. I'll definitely be back!
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    Victoria park was nice as usual, with a well-marshaled course and the ever-fantastic chase the sun finisher's medal. The rain made it a bit depressing, but considering the weather it was a great race!
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    Very well organised event, even despite the rain! Volunteers cheered us all the way round. Flat and fast course so great for a PB.
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    A great, low-key 10K around Victoria Park. Very nicely organised and with a easy to follow and clear course, I wouldn't have changed anything. Really enjoyable and with a friendly and fun atmosphere. Highly recommend!
  • Did the 5K in 2019

    Really nice race. Wonderfully run. Good location. My only concern with the course is that there were other people running and biking around it, and I wondered about the potential of a collision.
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    No sun to chase this time but the rain didn’t dampen our spirits. Superbly organised but Lucy and her team. And flapjacks on point once again.
