FANCY being among the first to cross the Olympic finish line?

Or want to set an exciting goal for the new year?

Well this is your chance.

The National Lottery has organised a five-mile National Lottery Olympic Park Run for 5,000 people which culminates in the new Olympic Stadium – and Examiner readers will be there.

It is a celebration of the contribution National Lottery players have made to London 2012.

A whole host of former Olympians and celebrities will also be taking part on March 31.

And although the ballot closed for the Run in October, the Examiner has secured 10 free places for our readers.

If you fancy running the track before Jamaican sprint star Usain Bolt does, answer the following question and send your reply to the Examiner:

Which Huddersfield Olympian ran the first ever four-minute mile?

Competition winners will also receive an additional two spectator passes to ensure their nearest and dearest can be part of the proud moment.

A special computer chip will be given to runners on the day to ensure an accurate running time is recorded, alongside a souvenir finisher’s medal, on-course refreshments, branded T-shirt to run in and a finisher’s pack.

The route will pass alongside iconic Olympic and Paralympic venues where many elite athletes’ hopes and dreams of London 2012 medal success will be realised just a few months later.

It will end on the home straight of the Olympic Stadium – which will host the athletics and Paralympic athletics events, as well as the opening and closing ceremonies.

The National Lottery is contributing up to £2.2 billion towards the funding of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, including the venues and infrastructure.

In a bid to keep readers updated with our runners’ Olympic progress, Examiner reporter Katie Earlam will also be taking part in the event.

All competition entries must be received by 10am on January 31 and entrants must have a valid email to receive their registration from The National Lottery.
