IUAD Corporate 5k Run 2022
London, Greater LondonVictoria Park, Grove Road, London, UK
Thu 23rd June 2022
Starting at 18:45
The Insurance United Against Dementia Corporate 5k Run is In support of Alzheimer’s Society who focus on helping change the lives of people affected by dementia.
Just by taking part you will help this cause.
As well as helping to change the lives of people affected by dementia, there are some great benefits to taking on the IUAD 5K. Unite with us and we will support you through every step of your journey.
The best way to take part is get a team together and fundraise as a group. For example, 5 of you can take on the 5k together and each commit to asking a handful of people to donate £10 to get you to the £75 target. We'll be able to time you and let you know who in your team was the fastest if you'd like to build up the element of competition!

The run itself is fully chip timed, you will receive individual placings plus there will be team results. Competitive or not competitive, you decide but either way it's about getting involved, running with colleagues and being part of a superb corporate run supporting a great cause.
How to Get There
There is no car parking in Victoria Park so if driving please plan ahead where you will park.
Nearest underground station: Mile End. Plan your journey to Mile End Station
Nearest rail stations: Cambridge Heath/Hackney Wick Station
From Mile End Station, turn left and cross over Mile End Road. Turn right onto Grove Road – it’s about 10-15 minutes walk straight down. Alternatively, you can also walk most of the way through Mile End Park, which runs parallel to Grove Road. You will first arrive at the Crown Gates.
The run route is 2 laps of Victoria Park. The first lap is the longer section around 3km and the second lap is the smaller section of 2km. The run route is on hard path and is a flat course. Suitable for wheelchair users.
There will be marshals around the course to support and encourage you. Please note placings for this race will be based on chip time.
Please take care when running around the course as this is public land and local residents will be out and about. Please always stay on the left unless otherwise guided. Enjoy this great run around Victoria Park.
