Route description
Route description

The route takes runners around the incredibly scenic Richmond Park on a mix of country paths and cross country sections. There are many fast sections but there are a few hills thrown in.

Runners are encouraged to go at their own pace so feel free to walk, jog or run

Please take care when running around the course as this is public land and local residents will be on the Park. Runners should also be aware that there are deer in the Park and they occasionally cross the walking paths and roads.

Well organised event with a fantastic scenery. Good for beginners, although not completely flat, as the first two km have a slight upward slope.

nice little hack around the park. Beautiful setting helped by lots of sunshine for us . A pretty rolling trail/path surface but easy to negotiate and a v chilled second half!

This is a well-organized event in the beautiful Richmond Park. The registration was quick and easy, and the varied terrain keeps the run interesting. There's a bit of a hill at the start, but the second half of the lap is quick. Don't forget to bring 20p for the toilets.

Really well organised event, with a great course. There's a few small inclines that might challenge the legs but shouldn't slow you down too much as I still managed a PB! <br />The race officials were super friendly and helpful and there was a really nice buzz around the start/finish area.

This was such a great event. Everything ran so smoothly from start to finish. I loved how they did a count down to start the race, I think it got everyone really motivated. The race itself was just stunning and as it was a fairly hot day it was really nice to have water throughout the course. Big thumbs up

This is a great local race, it's simple (don't expect cheering crowds) but a lot of fun. Perfect on a sunny day and going to the pub afterwards. Richmond Park is a beautiful place to spend a Saturday morning. The route had amazing views of the city in the distance and lots of deer and Canada geese about. Marshalls were amazing, so much fun! Particularly one lady at the start who was hilarious. Fix events were so quick getting results to us almost within an hour or finishing, and photos came first thing on Monday morning. Can't fault the organisation. The race uses the Richmond Park public loos by the gate so would arrive early to avoid queues. Would recommend the Lass O'Richmond Hill for lunch after the race - great beer garden 🍻

Beautiful course, very helpful group of marshals and just the right amount of hilly. Not too many participants as well, so a very cozy atmosphere.

Nice, gentle course, avoiding Richmond Park hills. Upbeat atmosphere, with useful water stops on the course for a hot day

Really simple and accessible 10k race with a really good vibe to it. The course was 2 laps which was fine with a couple of hills to mix it up a bit. No huge frills, although they did offer a huge bucket of sweets to pick at and a nice medal. Will do again.
