Frequently Asked Questions

What is the London 2012 Track?

It is the orginal track used during the 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games. The track was removed in spring 2016, so that a new track could be installed as part of the transformation works to convert The Stadium into its legacy mode. A small amount of the original track was retained, in order to produce the commemorative products that are now available for purchase.

What is the London 2012 Track Site?

Following replacement of the athletics track from the London 2012 Games at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park we are selling authentic track provided in a displayed product using the track as the centerpiece. These vary from Premium products such as start and finish lane numbers to a presentation pack containing your own piece of the track, either way buyers get a piece of history.

Who is behind the sale of the Track?

The track is being sold by E20 Stadium LLP, the joint venture established by the London Legacy Development Corporation and the London Borough of Newham, to manage The Stadium at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The Stadium is a publically owned asset and all the profits it generates are returned to the taxpayer.

E20 Stadium LLP has appointed Your Tribute Ltd to manage the 2012 track project on its behalf.
