Olympic Park 5k & 10k - December routes

This Christmas themed 5k and 10k will show London 2012 Olympic Park in all its glory. Participants will run right around the immense Olympic Stadium where GB's Greg Rutherford won gold in long jump on Super Saturday. Participants will also pass the unique and impressive ArcelorMittal Orbit Tower designed by Anish Kapoor and Cecil Balmond for the Games.

Get a chance to see these iconic landmarks more than was as the course is a loop with 5km athletes completing it twice and 10km runners doing it four times.

Course marshals will be on-site to direct you throughout the duration of the race.

  • Did the 10K in 2019

    Disappointed my chip didn’t work and so I had no official time. I put it on perfectly like everyone else. Just a shame.
  • Did the 10K in 2018

    Well organised event. Enjoyable route, and a decent medal at the end. It was a novelty to run somewhere in London with lots of parking!
