The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park 10k is an event run on the first Saturday of the month from October to March, writes Terry Bewes.

It is held in a phenomenal London location avoiding all road crossings.

It is a flat, three-lap race with a few tight turns and slight undulations taking in the Pringle, Arcelor Mittal Orbit and both sides of the river

It is a mixed ability race and all runners are welcome.

There were 567 entrants split roughly 50/50, male/female. Joining the start line wearing her ‘mighty green’ vest was Jane Hemsworth who completed the race in 51:03.

That time saw her win first place in her age group and she was also 51st female overall.

The £15 entry was great value as at the finish you were given a great goody bag and a sparkly medal.
