Route information
Join over a thousand like-minded runners and speed through the streets and stunning scenes of historic Kingston upon Thames.
Starting and finishing in the famous Ancient Market Place, runners will spend the first 5 miles winding their way along the flat, tarmac streets before heading to the river. Once at the river, runners will speed along the beautiful Barge Walk, offering 3 miles of riverside views as they approach the magnificent Hampton Court Palace.
After enjoying palatial views, runners will head through Thames Ditton before turning and heading back to the finish at the Market Place, where they will be spurred across the finish line to thunderous cheers of the awesome crowd that gathers there to support the event.
The course will be run on closed roads so you can focus on running your best race.

Finish Line Logistics
The timing chip inside your number will record your race time as you cross the line. Make certain that you run over the mat at the finish funnel, this will ensure that your chip is registered.
Once you have crossed the finish line, don’t stop, keep moving to the end of the funnels; stay in the exact order in which you have finished.
Please don’t get ahead of anyone in the finish funnels. This is very important for accurate timing and placing. If someone gets in front of you, politely ask them to go back, they may not only get your hard-earned place and time, but they may also mess the whole results up.
