Olympic Park 10k

Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park 10K

This 10K event is run on the first Saturday of the month from October to March. It is held in a phenomenal London location avoiding all road crossings. It is a flat, 3 lap race with a few tight turns and slight undulations taking in the Pringle, Arcelor Mittal Orbit and both sides of the river. It is a mixed ability race and all runners are welcome. There were 567 entrants split roughly 50/50, male/female.

Joining the start line wearing her Mighty Green Vest was Jane Hemsworth who completed the race in 51:03 wining her 1st place in her age group and 51st female over all. The £15 entry was great value as at the finish you were given a great goody bag and a sparkly medal. Jane said “it was awesome to be there” so awesome in fact that she did not even go shopping.
