Entries open TODAY for the Supernova London 5K which takes place on Saturday 3rd March, at 8pm. The event is being held at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London, with a jaw-dropping route which takes in the ArcelorMittal Orbit, Stratford Waterfront, London Aquatics Centre and of course the Olympic Park Stadium itself.
The Supernova 5K route at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park starts at the magical setting of the ArcelorMittal Orbit at 7pm. The route then heads north running parallel to the Stratford Waterfront before taking a right over the bridge towards the inspirational London Aquatics Centre. The route then swings back down over the bridge before meandering north throughout the magnificent Olympic grounds.
Runners should expect to be swept away on a distinctly magical experience as dusk falls on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Participants are offered a unique opportunity to grace the grounds of World Athletics Champions such as Mo Farah and Laura Muir, in one of the most iconic settings in the UK, passing the Olympic stadium before heading south along the canals for the last kilometre. The emphasis is on colour and sound around the route, providing runners and spectators alike with an unforgettable race. Fancy dress is strongly encouraged!
Event Director, Neil Kilgour says: “We very proud to be launching the Supernova 5K series in London again. The event has successfully taken place along Bournemouth Pier and The Kelpies in Falkirk for the past 2 years. We wanted to open it up to other venues to get even more people involved in this spectacular run.
“These events are for everyone, and we want to get as many people involved as possible. Whether you’re aged 5 or 50, a regular runner or you haven’t run in years; these events aim to bring families and friends together, dressed in the brightest, flashiest clothing you can find, to light up these iconic venues. The runners ARE the event!
Last year’s event sold out with thousands of runners descending on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park for the event, following in the footsteps of their favourite Olympians.
