London Universities and Colleges Athletics (LUCA) is hosting the first ever London Students’ 5 & 10K run on December 4th
Taking place on December 4th, the two fun races will start and finish outside the London Stadium, former host of London 2012 and now home to West Ham United, by the iconic ArcelorMittal Orbit in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
To be outside an arena that has held some of the greatest athletics spectacles ever will certainly be something! You will be running through the Parklands, a route that is part of “111 acres of open space including gardens full of flowering plants, broad meadows and intricate wetlands”. If you are relatively new to the sport, then this is a fantastic opportunity to run your first 5 or 10k. For more experienced runners, perhaps this is a chance for you to grab a new personal best?
