Applications have opened today for the first public run at the Olympic Park.

Anyone aged 16 or over and of any running ability can apply to take in the National Lottery Olympic Park Run.

Successful applicants will be the first runners to cross the Olympic Stadium finish line during the five-mile run on 31 March next year.

Each of the 5,000 successful applicants will also be allocated a pair of spectator passes to the Olympic Stadium, so two friends or family members can support them over the finish line.

The deadline for applying is midnight on 27 October.
