ABOUT THE COURSE
The run will take you up and around Richmond Park and 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 Results Base 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.
Water is available at the start/finish and at the 5km point. If you require additional fluid between these points please bring your own.
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.
AFTER THE RUN
Results go live as the event is taking place and can be viewed at the Results Base timing tent when you cross the finish line, however these also go live to The Fix Events website.
Every runner receives a medal at the finish line and trophies are up for grabs for the overall winners of the 5k and 10k runs.
Water is available once you cross the finish line.
Sweets will be available at the finish line along with any additional products that may be supplied by any of our event partners.
