East End Road Runners Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park 5km ELVIS #3
21 Jun 17
A 2-lap, chip timed, 5km road race starting at the Olympic rings and passing many of the iconic venues in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
This race is the third leg of the 2017 East London V Interclub Series (ELVIS), see: http://www.elvisraces.club/.
The race is open to ELVIS affiliated clubs and the general public. The race will have a very friendly atmosphere and all participants and their friends and families are invited to attend a mid-summer party at Tina We Salute You – a local bar/cafe situated very close to the start/finish point. It was a great success last year and we hope to see even more people turn out to celebrate the longest day of the year this time around.
Entries in advance please. No entries on the day. No exchanges on the day.
Race numbers will be issued on the day – from 6.30pm to 7.20pm.
