Sign up for the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park Run
Sunday 26 March 2017
Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London
This impressive Olympic venue plays host for the second time in 2017, offering choice of 5k or 10k. Take on this memorable challenge with family or friends and join our fight against heart disease.
The 5k circular route starts and finishes on Hopkins' Field in the heart of the Olympic Park, where you'll pass the Copper Box Arena and the Lee Valley VeloPark, taking in views of the London Stadium before passing through wetlands and past the famous Olympic rings.
Your entry fee covers the cost of organising the event. It's the money you raise that powers our life saving research.
Runners under 18 years must register by completing a downloadable entry form. On event day they must be accompanied at all times by an adult.

We want to put a stop to the devastation caused by heart disease, through our life saving research. We rely on your fundraising to ensure this vital work can continue. Together we will improve the lives of babies born with heart defects, find the genes that cause inherited heart conditions and one day find a cure for heart failure and heart disease.
We are asking everyone to raise £10 for every kilometre ran at this event.
Create your fundraising page
Creating an online fundraising page is the easiest way to raise money, it takes a few minutes to set up and can easily be shared with friends and family, on Facebook, Twitter and by email. Remember you're taking part in an amazing challenge - people will want to support you. Don't forget to use #Heartrunners and connect with others taking part.
We've created a series of profile pictures
to add to Justgiving or social media, which are a great way to let everyone know you've joined the fight against heart disease. We also have lots of great fundraising ideas
and fundraising downloads
Lots of companies operate Matched Giving schemes that can double the amount of money you raise. Find out if your employer operates a scheme and they will match what you raise. Remind them it's tax efficient for them and it'll benefit BHF lifesaving research.
