The five mile course takes in the park’s iconic sporting venues before finishing next to the ArcelorMittal Orbit.

Runners will follow a revised route from last year’s inaugural event, which is open to participants of all abilities.

Sir Chris said: “It will be really exciting to see all the runners on the new course, which takes in the VeloPark where I experienced some of the best moments of my career.

“This event is a great celebration of The National Lottery’s support for British sport, athletes and the community.”
