Even with final approval we know things can change fast at the moment. If we are unable to hold the event you can transfer your entry into the next event or we can offer all our entrants a full refund minus £2.50 booking fee.
Runfest Limited will make every effort to stage the Kew Gardens 10K as advertised on 11th September 2021. However given the uncertainty regarding Covid 19 and restrictions imposed by the UK Government we recognise it may be necessary to modify the race to meet restrictions in place at the time or, in extreme circumstances to postpone the race to a later date. We make it clear by this statement that as Covid 19 restrictions are not under our control, in the event of postponement we will not offer refunds, but will defer runners to the new date or to another race organised by Runfest Ltd
The 10k takes places completely within the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, a wonderfully scenic World Heritage site, and has a start which we believe to be the most beautiful of any running race in Europe! The course is not only beautiful, but flat, offering the perfect opportunity for the UK's fastest 10k!
