Organiser's Description

A beautiful 10k course all inside the World Heritage site, Kew Gardens. The only time you can run inside the gardens! And if that isn’t enough, the course is pancake flat!

Love it. My first 10k race and it was so much fun. Running through Kew Gardens was lovely, possibly slightly crowded but everyone was polite and it just pushes you to do your best. Cool medal as well, def signing up for next one

Amazing route. Amazing route, huge privilege to be able to run through these beautiful gardens. Well organized. Only niggle was long bathroom lines but being a 10K, went with the hold it option. I wasn’t shooting for a particular PB but could see it being challenging in places if I were as the paths aren’t the widest and there a number of turns.
