Organiser's Description

Take on our superb Richmond Park 5k, 10k and half marathon around this gorgeous venue. Places are limited to just say yes, get excited and be part of this fully race chip timed event!

A chance to lace up those shoes, get motivated, focus on training and run this event with us. There will be loads of great entry benefits including a super cool medal, sweets, drinks and a load of fun!

The 5k is one lap, the 10k is two and the half marathon is 4 laps.

We are proud to deliver the best in safety, fun and high quality organised events.

Encourage friends, family or work colleagues to join you as places are limited and these events sell out quickly. The Half Marathon will start at 9am and the 5k and 10k runs will start at 10am. We hope to see you there!

Course Details

Please note the course is a mix of trail and paths and we recommend trail shoes for this event - The course has also a gradual incline for the first 2km's - 5k is one lap and the 10k is two laps (please note the half marathon is 4 laps) - off road buggies are ok - wheelchair friendly however some sections are on grass/trail - note the course may be altered at any point up to event day if necessary

The run will take you up and around Richmond Park and the course is a mix of country paths, a little bit of cross country and as you may have guessed slightly undulating! Remember its all good fun and you can walk, jog or run!! Please note the course may be altered prior to the event and if so we will inform you of this.

Please note that the start of the run will be staggered to abide by Richmond Park Policy. However this will not affect your time as our Results Base timing system will record your time from when you cross the starting mat.

faqs

Can I wear headphones?
Yes we do allow this but please note it is your responsibility to make sure you can hear what's going on around you when running, including marshals and general public. Please keep the volume at a level whereby you can hear any important announcements that may be made. (this is allowed at running events but not triathlon, please see last faq for more info)

Can I walk / do you have a cut off time to complete the event in?
We typically have a cut off time of 1.5 hours to complete the 5k/10k races from when the event starts. 3 hours for half marathons. Walking part of a 5k event is typically fine but the 10k races are mostly for running (with a bit of walking/jogging if necessary!). If doing a virtual run you have the luxury of completing your event anytime, anywhere and for however long throughout the given event period!

Can I run with my dog/are you canicross friendly
Yes, we love too see dogs running with their owners! Please ensure your dog is on a short lead/harness and that you are careful on the course and respect other runners and park users.

Can I run with a buggy?
Yes this is typically ok for most locations however please check the run route course as some locations can be a mix of path, trail, grass so not always suitable for running with a buggy. Also please try and stay to the left as much as possible to give room for other runners. (this is allowed at running events but not triathlon, please see last faq for more info)

Do you have any age restrictions / can children take part?
Absolutely! We typically allow children of all ages to take part in all our events (unless specific information is given for a set event). Please note that children remain the responsibility of their parents/guardian throughout our events. If the parent/guardian is satisfied the child/children can confidently run 5k or 10k unaccompanied they may do so, with a parent/guardian remaining onsite at all times.

Will I receive race information in the lead up to my event?
Yes we send out email updates prior to your event and you can view all event details, news and offers by logging in to your user profile.

Will I be chipped timed?
Yes all our events (unless otherwise stated) are chip timed!! Your race chip will be on your race number bib which you receive on race day and which must be secured to your outer garment to ensure the chip works correctly.
