The Nice Work Richmond Park Christmas 10k & 5k routes

Round off the year with this festive 5k and 10k duo in Richmond Park. An undulating course across grass, tarmac, and hard track, it's pacy enough to provide ample opportunity for runners to beat their PB.

The 5k loop passes through Sheen Wood and the Teck Plantation, as well as Bishops Pond and Richmond Gate. There's also a chance to spot the herds of deer that roam through the park - doubly so if taking the second loop of the course to finish off the 10k.

    Second time I’ve done this race, despite COVID measures it was still a great experience. Hope to be back next year.

    Only my 3rd Covid non-virtual race, and despite the weather a privilege to be able to do so! Wonderfully-Covid-secure, which also means that marshals were out in the cold & wet far longer than usual, so a HUGE thanks to all.

    No atmosphere but not really anyone's fault. Very well organised and felt safe.
    Recycling the leftover medals from 2018 and 2019 is lame. Just saying.
    Maybe next year would stretch past a plastic 🤦‍♂️ bottle of water to add a nana🍌 as well?!

    Great last event of the year though

  • Did the 5k in 2017

    This was my first ever race and for me it was a good introduction. Richmond Park is a stunning location to run, albeit fairly busy on a clear and bright Sunday morning. There is plenty of parking, but if the car park is full there is parking just outside Sheen Gate on the road. The event tent was easy to find (I was a bit anxious about finding it, first race nerves and all that) but I was greeted by a friendly team who handed me my 5k number and timing chip. Once we lined up and got underway the course gently climbs along a dirt track for the first couple of km's, then turns to pavement for the next couple, and the last 1km is on grass which can be a bit muddy as its the same route for Parkrun every Saturday! It makes shoe strategy a bit difficult but I ran the Christmas one too and that was in the snow in normal running shoes rather than trails and worked out ok. The 10k race is two laps and there is a water point at 5k. Jaffa cakes and a medal at the end too.
