Build-up events are also taking place every weekend between now and the Games. For example, more than 6000 runners took part in a series of races around London's Olympic Park at the weekend. The field covered five miles, and participants were able to run on the track at the 80,000-seat capacity Olympic Stadium at the end of the race. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) have also conducted final inspections of the preparations for the 2012 Summer Games, and have praised the work highly. Fun and novelty events are also in full flow, from Mascot races on the track, the the building of an Olympic Torch app., to the launch of a British Airways plane in Olympic livery.
