Run London's most exclusive race starting in Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and finishing in an all-day family festival.

Richmond RUNFEST includes the Richmond Marathon, Richmond Half Marathon and the Kew Gardens 10k - the only time you can ever run in the world heritage site of Kew Gardens, showcasing all its wonders before following the track down to the longest stretch of River Thames owned by one Borough. Never has running been this beautiful and best of all - it's completely flat! The finish line greets you with our legendary Nike tech tee (you will wear it again!), our statement medal and a well-deserved free beer. Invite your family and friends to celebrate with you in the post race festival beer garden, champagne tent and the Richmond Fitness Expo.

From 1:30pm - 5pm its over to the kids as 2,000 little athletes compete in the Nike Kid's Mile. Every child receives a Nike tee and medal. 1,000 of these places are given free to local schools within the borough. 10% of race entry goes to local charities and in 2015 we raised over £350,000 making RUNFEST the biggest one-day annual fundraiser in the borough!

Race Start: Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, via Victoria Gate, TW9 3AB
Race Finish Festival: Old Deer Park (next to Pools on the Park Leisure Centre), TW9 2SF
