Sections of the track used by athletes at the 2012 Olympic Games in Stratford are being sold off by Newham Council and the London Legacy Development Corportation.

Those resident in the borough and British Athletics supporters will get first dibs on the various products over the weekend before they go on general sale on Monday, July 25.

The two organisations, which co-own the Olympic Stadium, will use the proceeds from the sale to maintain and operate the London Marathon Community Track as well as the facility itself.

A range of souvenirs is available, starting at £60 and including a Track In A Box for £99, which comprises a piece of track set in a commemorative box with a zinc-etched plaque authenticating the item.

The sections for sale were mainly taken from the 100m straight when the track was removed as part of work to convert it for use by West Ham.

Mayor of Newham Sir Robin Wales said “This track helped create some of the most iconic moments from the 2012 Games and this is an opportunity to own a piece of history.

"It is great that Newham residents and British Athletics supporters have been given a priority period to purchase this weekend.

“The Community Track will be the home of the Newham and Essex Beagles, and the Olympic Stadium will continue to host community events.

“Through our investment, we wanted to ensure a lasting legacy and being able to offer our residents and sports fans across the world the chance to take the historic track home is one of the many ways we can ensure they are part of this.”

British Athletics chief executive Niels de Vos said “The track at the former Olympic Stadium is iconic.

“Athletes such as Mo Farah, Jessica Ennis-Hill, Hannah Cockroft and David Weir all produced incredible performances on this track at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and this is your chance to have your own piece of history.”
