Route information
This looped 5k course circles the stunning Richmond Park, a vast green space famously home to herds of deer. The route is a mix of paths and cross country, with the first 2k being slightly uphill. The rest of the route is undulating with some great fast sections that you'll certainly enjoy.
5k runners will complete 1 lap of the course, 10k runners will complete 2 and the half marathon race will see participants complete 4 laps.
After you have completed your race, you could visit the famous Henry's Mound, located within the grounds of the park. This famous hill is where King Henry VIII stood to have perfect view of St. Paul's Cathedral can be seen through the telescope there. This mound is famously known as it is in fact against the law to obstruct the view from the top of this English burial mound. Standing in this spot also provides picturesque views of the Thames Valley.
