About the Olympic Park Half Marathon

Make your own Olympic history by running in the 2024 Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park Half Marathon. This unique half marathon is road closed and will begin and conclude at the home of the 2012 London Olympic Games, the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Have you ever wondered how it may feel to get your kit on and achieve greatness in this incredibly inspiring Olympic Park. The course will provide a mini-tour of iconic Olympic Landmarks and out onto the roads that surround (which will be specifically closed for this event), you will even get to experience one mile of Lee Valley VeloPark outdoor circuit and continue to race around the aquatics centre, the box arena and whizz past the hockey and tennis centres. The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park Half Marathon finish line sits at the ArcelorMittal Orbital Structure! Hate it or love it – you have to admit it’s a grand finale.
