We were the first to begin monthly 10k races around the iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, following the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. We're proud to continue to offer the best value, chip-timed races on this brilliant course passing by the London Aquatics Centre, The London Stadium, ArcelorMittal Orbit and through the park's green spaces and waterways.
All of our races are for runners of all abilities. With a great atmosphere, instant results printing and goody bags with blinging medals for every finisher, you'll find all you need to bring out your best run.
