About the event

The Richmond Running Festival is the only event that runs in the beautiful Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew. 

Starting in The Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew and finishing in Old Deer Park, the Richmond Half Marathon will be like no other. The course is flat and there will be plenty of entertainment on route to keep you going every step of the way.

This year the event was bigger than ever with over 5,000 people running through this World Heritage site before relaxing at a music festival and celebrating with their friends and family in the heart of Richmond.

Looking for the Richmond Marathon or the Kew Gardens 10K?

We also have places in the Richmond Marathon or the Kew Gardens 10K in case you would like to take part in either of these events instead!
