ABOUT THE COURSE
The run will take you up and around Richmond Park. The starting point is at Sheen Gate. The nearest postcode we have for here is SW14 8BJ. Please note this is not the exact postcode but should give you a close enough location. Sheen Lane is the street that takes you directly in to the park. View Streetmap.
There is carparking here and toilets are situated on the right immediately as you enter the Park. Please note the carpark has limited space as this is open to the public. If possible please leave the car at home or park before coming in to Sheen Gate. Richmond mainline station is about 30-40 minutes walk. Please find the link to the course map at the top of this page. The course is a mix of country paths, a little bit of cross country and as you may have guessed slightly undulating! Remember its all good fun and you can walk, jog or run!! Please note the course may be altered prior to the event and if so we will inform you of this.
Please note that the start of the run will be staggered to abide by Richmond Park Policy. However this will not affect your time as our race timing system will record your time from when you cross the starting mat.
There will be marshals around the course to support and encourage you.
Please take care when running around the course as this is public land and local residents will be on the Park. Please always stay on the left unless otherwise guided. Be aware that there are deer in the Park and they occasionally cross the walking paths and roads.
Results will be displayed on our race timing screen so after crossing the finish line you can check out your time.
Water is supplied at the start and finish line, as well as at the half way point for the 10k runners. Please note that as it is due to be hot and sunny on Saturday you may want to bring your own personal supply of water/drink for your run, if you require more than what is supplied on the course.
Snacks and sweets are also available at the finish line.

Everyone will receive a medal and there are also a few trophies that are up for grabs!
