Fancy a run in the Olympic Park way before the professional athletes pitch up? The Newham London Run on Sunday 27 March challenges you to a 10k route taking in the Stratford City development, Olympic Park and Greenway.
Not just good for a nose around Newham, the run is also great training for the London Marathon – in fact, at this late stage it should be a relative ‘walk in the park’.
A 4.5km Junior run is also open to those aged 11-17.
The race starts at 9.30am and if you prefer to spectate, a family Sunday Fun Day takes place in Stratford Park between 10.30am-4pm.
Deadline for entries is Thursday 17 March. Register online. Race fee £22.50.
