The Richmond Christmas 10K & 5K routes

The Richmond 10K course is a two lap route covering the paths and trails within the boundaries of Richmond Park. The course has been measured using a GPS and, because of its multi-terrain nature, cannot carry an official course measurement certificate. The route will be clearly marked using large route arrows and directional cones, as well as being marshalled throughout. We would ask you to remember that we do not have exclusive use of the park and you should be aware that other park users will be on the course.

The route is an undulating course with no significantly testing hills and covers a selection of hard track, tarmac with a small section on grass. You will pass around various sections of the park through Sheen Wood and past the Teck Plantation. You will also pass Bishops Pond and Richmond Gate. You may even be lucky enough to spot one of the many roaming herds of Red or Fallow Deer that have been known to watch the race as you pass down Sawyers Hill on a few occasions!

  • Did the 5K in 2018

    Bring a change of footwear as got very muddy due to rain.
  • Did the 10K in 2018

    It was great! Despite the weather. The only slight problem which the organiser cant do much about was the toilets. There was a massive queue so I missed the start
  • Did the 10K in 2018

    Bear in mind you dont know who is doing 5k or 10k so be careful who you try to keep pace with!Its fairly hilly but not too severe.
  • Did the 10K in 2018

    I was a complete beginner and a little scared at the start line. The organisers have great comfort and said not to worry of time, someone will always be there waiting for runners. I did it, I got my medal and mince pie and I feel very proud. I shall return to another event with this company.
