Route description
Route description

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

The route is 2.5km 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.
