Olympic run places available for Newham residents

Olympic run places available for Newham residentsFitness enthusiasts living in property to rent in Newham are invited to be among the first to run in the new Olympic Stadium.

The National Lottery Olympic Park Run is scheduled for March 31st next year and 500 of the 5,000 available places will be offered exclusively to Newham residents.

Participants in the five-mile race will run across the Olympic Park, as well as other venues for the 2012 Games, in the first public event held at the site.

They will then cross the finish in the magnificent stadium, alongside a host of former and current Olympic and Paralympic athletes and celebrity runners.

Mayor Sir Robin Wales commented: "This is good news for Newham residents - this run will give them the first opportunity to see the magnificent stadium up close."

"Those that take part will also get the chance to become a part of history as this will be the first sporting event held in the stadium. We want to inspire more young people to get involved in sport and fitness and we hope this run alongside our existing free sports programme will encourage more people get involved in physical activity. "

Newham residents who want to take part should go to www.newhamlondonrun.org, where they can enter their names into a ballot for the 500 spots.

Entrants need to be over the age of 15 and must be able to verify that they live in the borough.

Earlier this week, the deal that would have seen West Ham United assume control of the stadium collapsed, meaning the site is likely to remain in public ownership.
