Run With The Ancestors

Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London

Organiser's Description

Prepare to take a run on the wild side, encountering the blustery climates of yesteryear dominated by woolly mammoths and sabre-toothed cats, before the arrival of our first ancestors and their unique traditions.

Join us during British Science Week for a 5k or 10k at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, featuring a fascinating and unique soundtrack detailing one million years of Britain’s history. Grab your trainers, smartphone and headphones and find yourself running back in time.

This exclusive event, organised by the British Science Association in partnership with Eurotunnel, gives you the opportunity to achieve a new chip timed personal best and take home a themed medal, all while learning about the unique history of Britain.
