Route information
Welcome to the famous Richmond RUNFEST. Both routes will start at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, with runners passing a variety of stunning architecture and scenery along the way. Runners will catch sight of Kew Gardens very own The Pagoda, a tall building of Chinoiserie style. The course then passes the striking Syon House and then over Richmond Lock. Here the terrain changes from natural paths to the Thames towpath, while still remaining incredibly flat.
The course will end with a fantastic festival finish with live music in Old Deer Park.
Both courses are incredibly flat meaning runners can spend less energy on climbing hills and sweeping descents, and more effort on appreciating the surrounding sights and scenery.
