    Did the 10k in 2020

    An easier and quieter 10km than some other London ones. Quick bib pick up on the day. A scenic off road route with a few hills.
  • Did the 10k in 2020

    Always a good event. It can be tricky on the trails but also very enjoyable. Its always a well organised and very friendly event.
  • Did the 10k in 2019

    Great event for the New Year! Beautiful section of Richmond park and well-organised. Fun atmosphere at the end.
  • Did the 10k in 2019

    It was great, I loved the scenery, the deer and the mince pies afterwards were definitely welcome! Would run again.
  • Did the 10k in 2019

    This was my first 10k, and I enjoyed the run! Being in Richmond Park, I was able to distract myself with animal spotting when it got tough. My only tiny gripes were around the fact that advertising mentioned free "goodies" which to me suggested things like energy bars, but turned out to be biscuits and mine pies, and that it also mentioned a spot prize that didn't seem to happen (we stayed for the prize ceremony).
  • Did the 10k in 2019

    Very good event. Course was great. Marshals were great! Only points I would make would be..... Toilets were quite far away from start line and were the park ones. These got very busy before the race. Especially for the women. I would suggest portable toilets closer to the start line. The awards at the end were given out too close to the finish line. Some athletes were still finishing and some people were watching the bottles of wine being handed out, standing in the way.

    Lovely undulating 2 lap course through Richmond Park. Well organised, friendly marshals and a decent medal!
  • Did the 10k in 2019

    Unfortunately I was unable to run the 10k due to illness but my son, Number 184, did the 10k and loved it!
  • Did the 10k in 2019

    Very well organised and an enjoyable run! Lovely straight and flat stretch of road between kms 3-5 & 8-10k!
  • Did the 10k in 2019

    Very well organised from entering on the website, to getting the race pack in the post & the event on the day. Would definitely recommend & will be doing another
