About this event
Come and take on this amazing CheckPoint Run Challenge. You can aim to complete all our 6 CheckPoints and collect all 6 medals and race armbands as you reach each location. Or you may choose which CheckPoints you want to run between and collect those if you have already done a few of these challenges with us.
You can work towards completing our run route which is only a guideline or you decide. It's up to you how you get between each CheckPoint. Doing a full circuit is set at around a half marathon.
The CheckPoints are set as the below:
- Ham Street Riverside CheckPoint 1 - Parking and toilets available
- Kingston Bridge CheckPoint 2 - Paid parking, no direct access to toilets
- Teddington Bridge CheckPoint 3 - Paid parking, no direct access to toilets
- Twickenham CheckPoint 4- Paid parking, no direct access to toilets
- Richmond Green CheckPoint 5 - Paid parking, no direct access to toilets
- Richmond Park East Sheen CheckPoint 6 - Parking and toilets available
This is how it works:
* On challenge day you can come to any of our set checkpoints and start at whichever one suits you
* You can start anytime between 8am and 10am
* We will have event crew at each CheckPoint to support you, check you in, set you off!
* You can do the full circuit, checkpoint A to B, B to C, etc and do whatever course, CheckPoints you choose to
* Distances you can complete will range from 5k, 10k up to a half marathon if doing the full circuit
* There's no set route in between each checkpoint so you can either take our recommended route or choose your own
* Live results will happen as you scan a QR code at each checkpoint and these results will go straight to our live leaderboard
* Receive a stunning medal and a checkpoint challenger armband at each location. Medals in order as below relate to the CheckPoint number
Start at any CheckPoint you choose. You then decide if you want to follow our guideline run route or take your own chosen path between each checkpoint. Great fun! The course is a mix of path, road, trail and sections of flat or undulating so come prepared.
You can view the CheckPoint locations on the race map but please note we will provide exact details/locations ahead of race day.

Absolutely! Get as many friends, family or colleagues together and run as a team. You are not required to run together and each person will receive their own time however it's just fun to run under a team name.
Can I run with a buggy?
Yes this is typically ok for most locations however please check the run route course as some locations can be a mix of path, trail, grass so not always suitable for running with a buggy. Also please try and stay to the left as much as possible to give room for other runners. (this is allowed at running events but not triathlon, please see last faq for more info)
Can I volunteer to marshal at the event?
Absolutely! If you miss out on a place or just want to help out on the day and marshal that would be great. We need as much help as possible to ensure we can give runners the best experience possible and that includes plenty of marshals on the course, helping with registration, bag storage, water stations, handing out medals and general event support. Typical volunteer hours are from 8am until around 12pm and all volunteers will get drinks, snacks and a free entry to any Fix Event!! Please get in touch by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We would welcome you to join our team.
Can I walk / do you have a cut off time to complete the event in?
We typically have a cut off time of 1.5 hours to complete the 5k/10k races from when the event starts. 3 hours for half marathons. Walking part of a 5k event is typically fine but the 10k races are mostly for running (with a bit of walking/jogging if necessary!). If doing a virtual run you have the luxury of completing your event anytime, anywhere and for however long throughout the given event period!
Can I run with my dog/are you canicross friendly
Yes, we love too see dogs running with their owners! Please ensure your dog is on a short lead/harness and that you are careful on the course and respect other runners and park users.
Can I wear headphones?
Yes we do allow this but please note it is your responsibility to make sure you can hear what's going on around you when running, including marshals and general public. Please keep the volume at a level whereby you can hear any important announcements that may be made. (this is allowed at running events but not triathlon, please see last faq for more info)
Do I have to fundraise for the charity you are supporting?
You are not required to fundraise but if you choose to that would make a huge difference to the charity, whatever amount you raise. You can fundraise for any charity of your choice.
