The Race Course for Great Newham London Run
The Great Newham London Run will take runners through Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Starting a stone's throw from the iconic ArcelorMittal Orbit, the 10k course makes its way past the London Aquatics Centre before looping back round behind the Stadium towards the Copper Box Arena. At the 7k mark runners will cross over the River Lea towards Lee Valley VeloPark. At this point there's only a few kilometres left before heading back into the Stadium where the finish line sits on the running track. Get that finish line feeling and multiply it by 10, knowing this is the same spot where world-class athletes made their appearance at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
As one of the most vibrant and multicultural boroughs in England, Newham is well worth a visit. A trip to east London is even more essential since it took centre-stage as the host of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Newham is home to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park where there is a wealth of sporting activities on offer to visitors. Take a dip in the ‘pool of champions’ at the London Aquatics Centre, or show off your pedal-power in Lee Valley VeloPark.
The Great Newham London Run will finish inside the most recognisable venue in the Park – the Stadium.
Our own ‘Super Sunday’ will be created as we see thousands of runners cross the finish line on the running track inside the Stadium to a wall of applause and support given by runners’ friends and family spectating from the arena seats.
Event Location: Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London , E20 2ST
