British Heart Foundation Run

Follow in the footsteps of Pavey and Farrah to fund lifesaving research by taking part in the British Heart Foundation Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park Run on Sunday 26 March 2017.

You can take on a 5k or 10k run on this inspiring course that takes in views of the Olympic Park where Team GB won 65 medals in 2012.

The 5k loop is traffic-free on the tarmac paths around the park and starts and finishes on the North West lawns in the heart of the Olympic Park. You’ll pass the Copper Box Arena and Lee Valley VeloPark taking in views of the London Stadium before passing through the wetlands and past the famous Olympic rings.
