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.

This is race 3 of 3 in the Royal Parks Summer 10K Series 2020, the remaining two races taking place at Hyde Park and The Regent's Park in June/July.
