Richmond Running Festival – Half Marathon

September 2017

Richmond, London

This autumn, take on a half marathon in one of the most beautiful gardens in London

Richmond Running Festival

The Richmond Half Marathon forms part of the Richmond Running Festival, which is taking place Saturday 16 – Sunday 17 September. Once you cross the finish line you'll be able to celebrate in style! The Richmond Running Festival will bring the very best of South West London together to embrace fitness, charity and local business with a music festival, fitness expo, great food and drink and kids' races in Old Deer Park. 

Don’t forget to invite your friends and family down too! They’ll get free entry to Kew Gardens (usually £16 per ticket).

Richmond Half Marathon

The Richmond Half Marathon starts in the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew (a world heritage site), before taking a scenic tour of Richmond, passing through the most beautiful part of London. The course is flat and there will be plenty of entertainment on route to keep you going every step of the way.

We need your support

Every day, 260 new children arrive at Great Ormond Street Hospital, many of whom are seriously ill. Four go straight to intensive care. This extraordinary place has always depended on public support to give children the chance for a better future. With new challenges every day and more and more children requiring treatment at the hospital, we need that support now more than ever.
