Course information

This 3K course is a single lap route which takes place in the beautiful and iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The route is mainly on paths with some grass sections and a few inclines. There are some fantastic views along the way, including the Velodrome, Waterglades, Olympic rings, Olympic stadium and the Orbit. 

Please arrive 15 to 20minis before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time

Meeting point

The meeting point is Hopkins Field just off Waterden Road. This is around a 15-20 minute walk from Stratford stations so please leave extra time for your journey. If coming from Stratford, you will pass through Westfield and be directed towards John Lewis on Westfield Avenue. When you reach the traffic lights at John Lewis, directly opposite the Stadium, turn right and follow Westfield Avenue; it leads onto Waterden Road. Keep on Waterden Road until you reach the event site. Stewards will be positioned from the station along the route to help direct you from the station - please listen to them. Please note that the pin on google does not drop at the event site.

This event is wheelchair accessible WITH ASSISTANCE due to a few inclines and a kerb on the course route. Please note there are a couple of short sections on grass which may become boggy in the event of bad weather, including a grass slope up to the Olympic rings - these sections can be avoided but will make the course distance shorter. The event site is all on grass but is accessible for wheelchair users with assistance,  and an accessible toilet will be available onsite.
