hello. does the route go through the olympic park at all?

Looks interesting but does the entry price include a t-shirt or is it an extra £15 as the event page is a bit confusing?

Seems a pretty high price for a 10k race although as you're only down the road, I'm tempted to come along just to shake Fauja Singh's hand and congratulate him on his achievements!

I am in and hoping to recover some form from last year since my first born arrived in December....usually prepping for a spring marathon at this stage of the calendar and the first time in 4 years..but the little one has meant scaling back on spare time for training.... just got to get the 10k legs back and running....

also nice to have a 'local' event to enter...well local to E17....

3 weeks to go - everyones training going ok?

 Not done this before - any advise on parking on the day?

Stratford Centre E15 1AZ has 500 car parking space. Westfield at Stratford has 5000 car parking space.
Side roads around west ham park have pay parking bays

A better option would be to arrive on the tube. West Ham park is only 5-10 min walk from Plaistow Tube station.

this is one of those feel good factor races - i've done 'em all since the 1st one lauched at the back of the Showcase Cinema.  someone asked if this takes in the Olympic Park - in previous years the race took you up to the basin of the stadium, i must admit the route got a little narrow and precarious and i paid more attention to my footfall over the emerging stadium.  that said the workmen on site were full of support and encouragement - it's the one time you'd welcome litany from the builders, aye!

i found the route well thought out (if it takes in the Olympic Park this year, it will be less work-site than in previous years), and marshalled. 

other points: in previous years, there was entry on the day - check the website if the same is happening this year. do not mistake STRATFORD park for WEST HAM park, there is planned engineering works on the District Line and road closures for those coming by bus or car.

be sure to say hello to Tessa Sanderson MBE and Sharon Davies CBE, who will gladly shake your hand and pose for pictures - true ambassadors for UK sports.

happy racing!

I'm in for this. 

 I'm aiming for 37 mins.  Thankfully only a few stops on the London Overground for me.

Just done the Reading Hlaf so am all set for this now - will be going for a PB!

any news when packs are arriving?? weird doing a 10k when have been in marathon mode for past 4 years at this time of year, but becoming a father recently means I'm allowed to prep for shorter distance only....will be good to get race pins on again...

Race Pack has been sent to your postal address. If you do not receive in time then you can come on the race day to Baggage Counter area to get new number so you wont miss the run. Route map: Its fast, flat and traffic free route . Highly suitable to set new PB
