The 13.1 mile flat run starts in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and speeds along through East London city streets via Hackney Downs, Hackney Empire, Broadway Market, Victoria Park, and the London Stadium. 

It’s a cool urban run with a potential for achieving personal best. Plus there are bands and DJs along the route and a full 'festival of fitness' at the finish line!
