Organiser's Description

Run in the footsteps of legends around the iconic sights of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Along a flat, smooth course, you'll be inspired by the scenic waterways, green spaces and sporting venues including the London Stadium, the London Aquatics Centre, the Copper Box Arena, Lee Valley VeloPark and Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre.

Our 10K course has been completed more than 15,000 times since we established this monthly event in 2014 - by first-timers, beginners, long-time runners and elite 10,000m athletes. It's here for everyone, whether you're chasing a 10K personal best or simply aiming to complete the course - and our brilliant race day atmosphere, souvenir medals and goody bags will make it a race to remember.

Usually with around 500 runners per race, you'll find you've all the space you need and plenty of other runners at your pace to get a great race experience.

We were the first to begin monthly 10K races around the iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park following the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and we're proud to continue to offer the best value, chip-timed races on this brilliant course.

Good run.......

Well organised in trying conditions. Great effort given that rapidly rising water levels flooded part of the course on the morning of the race. Organisers hastily re-routed the course, but the event went well in spite of the rain! Very friendly marshals, just a shame it was under COVID-19 rules, and so we has to disperse quickly, but great to be back racing. Thanks everyone!

Fun despite the rain. Ran the 10k on Saturday. Credit to the organisers for changing the route at the last minute due to flooding. Friendly, helpful staff and I enjoyed the race.

What’s not to love?. Really lovely morning: - well organised - small in terms of numbers of runners - friendly, fun atmosphere - interesting route despite being 3 laps - solid ground and well sign posted with cheery guides - somewhere to stay warm pre race and go for a nervous wee - great opportunity for supporters - easy to get to and from - post run snacks and water - easy bag drop and collection - just so simple and fun!! 💗
