Spectator Admission

Kew Gardens is a ticketed venue so we are delighted that your race entry also allows an additional 2x adults and 2x children (U16) to enter with you FREE of charge when you arrive for the race!

  • IMPORTANT: For your spectators to access this free entry they will need to be in the Gardens before the gates close at 08:30am for our private run. Once the gates close there is no admission until they re-open to only paying customers. Once you are in Kew Gardens you can remain there for the rest of the day but you cannot exit and then re-enter without paying the standard entry fee.

Post race entertainment

After the events, finishers and their families will be treated to an afternoon of acoustic live music and a picnic (bring your own or purchase on the day) on the lawn.

All UK race packs will be posted two weeks before the race. You should expect to receive this in the final week 4th-8th April.

Beautiful course at a beautiful time of year. Only drawback is that the entry to the village was at a back entrance and quite the walk from the station and the Victoria gate that most people are familiar with - though it's understandable that this is done to not get in the way of staff prepping the front of the gardens for the day. Just be sure to leave 15 mins to walk there from the station.
