Great atmosphere, organised event

It was a well organised event, toilets, numbers and tags all clearly signposted.

Played chariots of fire and London Marathon theme music at the start of the race which was fun and got you in the mood! pleasant and varied scenic route along the river and the woods. No loops in the course which made it more enjoyable.

Fun event

It was my first time doing the Richmond 10k and I really enjoyed it. The stewards were really helpful. I was especially pleased with the medal and snacks provided at the end. Looking forward to seeing my shirt.

Mostly good

Great event, course, medal and post race snacks. However, my watch said I was 500 meters a head of the course distance until the 9km sign and then suddenly 20 meters short so had to run past the finish line to get the full distance. Also, was told I’d get a T-shirt which wasn’t there.

Hi Louise,

Thanks for the feedback - the T-shirts are being posted out to you. Sorry theye were not available on the day. Also the course distance is correct as we have had it measured with loads of devices and is run for many years now. Thanks again
