About the event
The National Lottery Newham London Anniversary Run is back for 2014. Following the jubilant scenes of last year’s event, runners will have the opportunity to celebrate London 2012’s legacy in style once again.
This time around there will be no stadium finish, with the five-mile course instead featuring a number of the prestigious arenas that housed such inspirational scenes two years ago. The National Lottery Newham London Anniversary Run will take place on Sunday 20 July.
Taking in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the course includes the Velodrome, London Aquatics Centre and the Copperbox. You’ll get the chance to see the athletes’ former basecamp as you run through the East Village, as well as experience the beautiful new parklands and river ways.
There will be a shorter distance available for children in the Family Run, which offers an opportunity for younger runners aged 5 years and older to take part with an accompanying adult. Sign up here for the reminder service and we will email you when entries are open for this event.
By playing The National Lottery, the public provides crucial funding to our Olympic and Paralympic athletes and have most recently supported a glorious return of medals from the Winter Olympics and Paralympics in Sochi.
The National Lottery Newham London Anniversary Run, staged in partnership with the London Borough of Newham, celebrates this contribution and the life-changing support players continue to give both grassroots and elite sport in the UK.
N.B. Please note, the 2014 event will NOT be taking place in the Stadium, as in 2013, due to it's redevelopment.
