Richmond’s running extravaganza includes the Kew Gardens 10k, Visit Richmond Half Marathon, NIKE Kids’ Mile Races and the Richmond Fitness Expo and Music Festival. Get in on the action!
Run London's most exclusive race during a day that includes Kew Gardens 10K, Visit Richmond Half Marathon & NIKE kids' mile races, along with Richmond Fitness expo and music festival. This year’s Richmond Running Festival has to feature one of the most spectacular scenic courses in the world taking in breath-taking parts of London’s Thames. You’ll get the chance to run in the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew – a World Heritage Site overlooking the Thames – before embarking on a scenic tour of Richmond that takes you down the longest stretch of the Thames owned by one, single Borough. You can also enjoy a flat course with live entertainment to temporarily distract you from the beautiful surroundings! The race finishes in Old Deer Park with a festival, a great medal and technical T-shirt waiting for you along with a free beer! The fun does not stop on the finish line as runners are treated to a day of live music, food stalls, beer festival, Fitness Expo and the Nike Kids' Mile races. After selling out last year, here are increased entries in each race but you’re advised to sign up early to avoid disappointment! 10% of all race entry goes directly to the festival’s official charities: The Poppy Factory and the Mo Farah Foundation.
