Route information
This event features one of the most scenic 10k routes, with the race run on roads and paths in Kew Gardens, famous for its vast collection of plants and gorgeous scenery. The course is completely flat, so ideal for those taking on a 10k for the first time or for runners looking to achieve a new PB over the distance.
Starting from the Broad Walk, the route will take you past Palm House and its indoor rainforest at the first kilometre, before you reach Queen Charlotte's Cottage at the 3k mark. The iconic Great Pagoda will spur you on at the 6k point, before you snake past the Temperate House and Kitchen Garden. Just before you finish, you'll be able to glimpse Kew Palace, the former summer home of King George III and Queen Charlotte.
The race will finish in the Old Deer Park.
