Overview

Run either 5k or 10k with us at the Olympic Park, London on Sunday, 11th October 2020 at 6pm.

We have revamped our successful Toyota 5k that took place in March 2019 into this brand new 'Lightning Run' an evening race where you will all be provided with glow in the dark goodies & UV paint to take part in this beginner friendly run around the historic grounds of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

With accurate chip timing, a dual 'hybrid' connecting medal for those that complete the 10k, which is two laps of the 5k, finishers snacks & a flat fast course to enjoy with your friends & family we can't wait to see you on the start line!

The brand new London Lightning Run celebrates the efficient & industry leading Hybrid Technology that is present in the new models of Toyota's Electric cars whilst we also donate a % of profits to local causes - Charities TBC
