Route information
Starting at Sheen Gate, runners take on grass terrain along the side roads to reach Richmond Gate. This is the perfect opportunity to catch a panoramic view of London. Runners will run through the stunning Dutchess Wood, past the famous White Lodge, and will then follow the road as it winds down towards Spankers Hill Wood.
Then take the road down towards Robin Hood Gate. Here, you will rejoin the Tamsin trail and then head off clockwise towards Broomfield Hill where we have water and runners food available.
You'll continue towards Ladderstile Gate, through the woods at Dark Hill, and towards the crossing of the Tamsin Trail at Kingston Gate. Please take care with traffic here.
Join the Tamsin trail at the corner where it backs onto the Golf Club and stay on the Tamsin trail towards Petersham Gate, with some glorious views of the park and scenery to take in.

Great to be able to do a half marathon in Richmond Park and to do so without looping at all. Great experience and well worth the entry fee.

Overall, this was great event. The atmosphere was there from the beginning, with all the marshals and officials being really friendly and helpful. The route was well marked and there was plenty people along the way to guide you. There is a couple of reasons I would say the organisation needs a little work - although neither of these things would be hard to solve! Firstly there was only three toilets at the start line, and due to the high number of runners, the race had to be delayed 10 minutes to give people enough time to use the facilities before the start. A few more toilets there would have made everyone's experience just a little more enjoyable. The second point is, they did the presentations for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd male/female at the start finish line - so they were directly in front of people still finishing. This led to a big of congestion on the finish line, which wasn't really fair for people who just crossing. Moving the presentation to one side slightly would have made a huge difference! However both easy things to solve, and didn't have a negative impact on the overall day. If you're looking for a relatively small, and lower key half marathon then this would be perfect!

Well organised and friendly race. Richmond Park is a fantastic, if hilly, place to run. Plenty to recommend.

Nice route, full of hills and a mixture of running surfaces. Well organised but the route could have had better signage, some runners took the wrong path at some points

The Richmond Park Half Marathon was really enjoyable (not according to my legs), and I would recommend it. Good atmosphere and friendly event staff. Despite the activity in the park, on a beautiful Sunday morning, I only nearly got lost once but thankfully I was quickly directed towards the next marker by one of the volunteers :) Top marks
