What's Included

All runners will receive a medal for finishing as well as loads of goodies at the finish including water, juices, fruit and a chocolate bar!

We use the latest Chip Timing technology so you will get an accurate finishing time. The results are posted as soon as you cross the finish line! We will have a free baggage drop facility for you to use. This area will be cordoned off but we do advise against storing any valuables as we can’t be held responsible.

Toilets will also be provided at the start / finish area. An official race photographer will be in attendance around the course so make sure they catch you when you are looking your very best! A Medical team will also be situated at the start area.

We will also have a pre-race warm up around 10 minutes before the race start to warm up those tight muscles so you will be ready for the run.

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
