Sheen Gate, Richmond Park, London SW14 8BJ

We are starting right next to Sheen Gate. The nearest postcode we have for here is SW14 8BJ. This is not the exact postcode but should give you a close enough location with a sat nav. Sheen Lane is the street that takes you directly in to the park.

Train - Richmond mainline station is about 30-40 minutes walk and Mortlake is about a 20 minute walk away. Getting there from the Tube/Train station will need careful planning. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time!!

By foot - The park is easily accessible by both foot and cycle. Cycle parking is available.

There is car parking here with toilets situated on the right immediately as you enter the Park. Please note that the carpark has limited space as this is open to the public.

The course will be a 4 lap loop with the runners registering chip times on each lap. Lap times will be listed in the results so you can track how well you paced your run.

We will have a lead bike and plenty of marshals as well as mile signs and arrows all around the course. Please be aware that there will be spectators and members of the public walking around the park on their Sunday walk. Please familiarise yourself with the course map before you start, there is a mixture of trail paths, well trodden pathway, and grass.

Well organised and friendly staff

This was my first run in Richmond park. It was beautiful scenery, great staff and the medal and shirt were great! I will definitely be doing this again !

Very fun and well organised

Great event, beautiful park, small enough that there are no queues but still a great atmosphere with loads of participants

Great race

The event was well organised, plenty of Marshall's and signage in the course.
The course itself was scenic and a beautiful day for running.
The medal t-shirt and snacks always help at the end as well.

Simply Beautiful (but muddy)

Such a beautiful course with mixed terrains and hills. I really enjoyed the 4 laps as it broke down the 13.1 miles nicely! The organisers were great and the support from the marshals was amazing - would definitely do the course again (maybe in the summer to avoid the mud slides at the end!)

Beautiful course

You will be running past herds of wild deer, see distant views of London.
The terrain is paths, roads and in the summer, dust paths (Not bad)
Being a park this is open to the public.
There is carparking on site.

Scenic beauty and beastly hills

What a beautiful park! I was promised a deer sighting but had to make do with luscious green and leafy surroundings that would make any visitor appreciate how good our parks are in the London.

As for the run itself, standard fare for RunThrough Events. Very well organised and seamless production. The four laps is a good way to do it as it mentally splits the run into managable quadrants. If it wasn’t for the big incline it would be my favourite race for sure. But hey, it’s great for fitness!!

Good Race and well Organised

A well structured and organised event. All the support staff were amazing from arrival, bib collection and throughout the race on the course marshals were very supportive!

only down side is the amount of plastic waste from water bottles, but for a small race series this is a problem for most races.
