Public transport is the best and easiest way to get to and from the Park – by train, underground, bus or bicycle. The Park has some of the best transport links in London:

• Nine tube and train links (Served by the 24 hour night tube on the Central and Jubilee lines)
• Numerous bus and coach routes
• Less than 40 minutes to all of London’s major railway stations
• Seven minutes to St Pancras International
• 30 minutes to the M25
• Less than an hour to all London international airports from Stratford station

The nearest train, tube and bus stops are at Stratford, Stratford International, Hackney Wick, Pudding Mill and Leyton stations.

If you are exiting out of Stratford Underground Station - take the escalator or lift up to ‘The Street’ (which is the outdoor part of Westfield Shopping Centre) – follow it along, and turn left at Fountain Square towards the restaurants. Head to the road, then cross into the Park.

The warm up will start at 10.45am, with the event beginning at 11am.

Walking is open to any age, but you must be over the age of 15 on the day of the event to run the 10k. For the 5k children may run but those under the age of 14 should not treat it as a race, as this is considered unsafe by UK athletics, so they should treat it as a fun run and take it slowly.

Children 5 and under take part for free.
