Celebrate British Science Week with a special race event at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London, on Saturday March 16, 2019.

The 10k race will scale down one million years of Britain's history into a fascinating and unique soundtrack, provided via an immersive new running app created by Six to Start, the team behind Zombies, Run! If you're looking for a shorter race, our 5k race will scale 500k years of the same story.

From the blustery climates of yesteryear dominated by Woolly Mammoths and sabre-toothed cats to the arrival of our first ancestors and their unique traditions, take a step back in time and run through Britain's remarkable history.

The 5k race is perfect for families and less seasoned runners while the 10k is best for more confident runners.

Wondering what to expect? Check out pictures from our previous races: Run the Solar System and Run to the Deep.

Please note:For the full, immersive experience we are encouraging all runners with a smart phone to download the accompanying Run with the Ancestors app, which will be available to download for free during British Science Week. If you purchase a race ticket, we will send you instructions about how to access the app nearer the time.

Follow the British Science Association on Twitter and Facebook for regular race updates.

Run with the Ancestors is organised by the British Science Association in partnership with Eurotunnel.

End Time: 12:00 pm
