RunThrough Richmond Park Half Marathon - September
We are excited to have an additional Richmond Park Half Marathon in the 2019 calendar, for Sunday 16 September. Richmond Park has been managed as a Royal deer park since the seventeenth century, and it’s likely you’ll spot some deer around the course! We hope you join us for what will no doubt be a fantastic Sunday morning.
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.

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!!

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.
We will have a lead bike and plenty of marshals as well as mile signs and arrows all around the course. The course is 4 laps. 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.
