Route description
Route description

The race commences from the spectacular ArcelorMittal Orbit Tower, one of the park's most unique attractions. Runners will then loop around the enormous Olympic Stadium - site of Usain Bolt's 9.63 100m Olympic record - and along the waterfront with views toward the Lee Valley VeloPark.

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

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