SIMPLYHEALTH GREAT NEWHAM LONDON RUN – Sunday 1st July 10km
As one of the most vibrant and multicultural boroughs in England, Newham is well worth a visit. A trip to east London is even more essential since it took centre-stage as the host of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Newham is home to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park where there is a wealth of sporting activities on offer to visitors. Take a dip in the ‘pool of champions’ at the London Aquatics Centre, or show off your pedal-power in Lee Valley VeloPark.
The Simplyhealth Great Newham London Run will finish inside the most recognisable venue in the Park – the Stadium.
Chris Robey finished with a great time of 44:14
