Morrisons Great Newham London Run

Taking place in and around Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park the 10K event is part of an exciting day of running in London. With the return of the Morrisons Great Family Run (now closed after reaching its entry limit) and the brand new Morrisons Great Newham London Run 4 x 1/4 Marathon Team Relay, Sunday 19 July is a day not to be missed. All runners in the 10k will get the chance to have their very own Olympic moment as they finish inside the Stadium and cross the famous finish line and running track, which saw Olympic greats Usain Bolt, Jessica Ennis-Hill and Mo Farah race across in 2012. The course will also take in the sights of Lee Valley VeloPark, the London Aquatics Centre and the Copper Box Arena. This will be one of the few chances for you, your friends and family, to see the newly developed Stadium before the Rugby World Cup in September. The weekend also includes the Great Newham London Swim on Saturday 18 July at the Royal Victoria Dock.

The Course

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.

Course Map

Event location

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 Morrisons 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.
