The Richmond Park New Year 10k & 5k routes
This event will take place on the variety of hard-packed tracks, tarmac walkways, and grassy plains within the park's boundary. The course will be clearly marked throughout, however please be vigilant of any members of the public using the park.
The course is lapped:
10KM - 2 Laps 5KM - 1 Lap
Make sure to keep your eyes peeled for a chance to spot the park's famous deer who have often been spotted watching as runners speed down Sawyers Hill.

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).
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.
