Participants in the National Lottery Anniversary Run on Sunday 21st July 2013 will be the first to use the Olympic Stadium since the 2012 Olympic Games. Up to 10,000 members of the public are set to take on the five mile course which will cross the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and, for the final 300 metres, runners will be in the Olympic Stadium on the track used by the likes of Usain Bolt, Jessica Ennis, Jonnie Peacock and Mo Farah. Each runner is allowed to bring two friends or family members to occupy the stadium seats and cheer them on. There will be a family fun run for up to 2,000 children and adults covering a shorter distance within the fomer Olympic park. Entries - allocated on a first come, first served basis - open at 9am on Thursday 25th April 2013. The run is one of a series of events re-opening the Olympic Park a year after the Games and is followed by the London Anniversary Games, three days of professional sporting competition from 26th to 28th July, on the anniversary of the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony.

About Olympic Stadium

The centre-point of the London 2012 Games, the £537 million Olympic Stadium, becomes a new permanent sports venue after the Games. Changes include reducing the seating capacity from 80,000 to 60,000 by removing the top layer of the stadium, a temporary lightweight steel and concrete upper tier. More about Olympic Stadium
