RunThrough Chase the Sun Olympic Park 5k & 10k - July
We’re delighted to present the 2019 Run Through Chase the Sun series! We’re back mid-week, evening 5k and 10k events with some new venues; it is a battle to get around the course before the sun goes down. We will be back at one of the most popular Chase The Sun Series venues, the iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on Wednesday 10th July 2019.

Bag Drop - There will be a secure area where you can leave a bag. Please bring as little as possible. Your baggage tag is attached to your race number, you simply tear it off and attach to your bag. To collect, all you have to do show you number to the baggage tent staff and they will help you find your baggage.
Refreshments - There will be water provided at the 5k point of the race, and water at the finish. There will also be bananas & flapjacks waiting for you at the finish.
Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, 3 Thornton Street, London E20 2ST
The nearest train, tube and bus stops are at Stratford, Stratford International, Hackney Wick, Pudding Mill and Leyton stations.
There will be marshals all around the course as well as km signs and arrows. The course is two laps for the 5k and four laps for the 10k on the roads/paths in the park. Please be aware that there will be spectators and members of the public using the park.
Great... but a bit short!?
Also I noticed that the first loop took a slightly different route through the wetlands than the other two, which cut about 150m off the total distance. Coincidence?!
Anyways, will defo do it again! :-)
