About the event

The Richmond Running Festival takes part in the beautiful Royal Botanic Gardens of Kew and there is plenty of choice with a 10K, Half Marathon and Marathon route to choose from.

What makes the event truly special that your race entry includes free entry for your friends and family to explore Kew Gardens while they are supporting you (as long as they enter before 8.40am).

This year, the event will be 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 beautiful Richmond upon Thames.
