Sundown 5k @ Richmond RUNFEST
Watch the sun go down as you run, jog or walk this new, flat, 5k at Richmond Runfest, with entertainment to keep you going every 500 meters, then celebrate at the after party with live music, food, and a bar for the thirsty adults! It doesn't matter if you walk it, jog it, or run it, just join us and ‘do your thing’!
The start and finish of this event are towards the back of Old Deer Park, and the course is 2 x 2.5k loops, with 10 entertainment stations!
Sport England have issued the following statement regarding the government announcement on group sizes:
Following changes made by government today in relation to group sizes, we have sought clarity on what this means for sport and physical activity.
While social gatherings above six are banned in England from September 14, organised sports and activities that have been through return to play protocols can continue as can organised outdoor sports events, like parkrun which is due to return next month.
People can also continue to use leisure facilities, including gyms and pools.
That’s because these sports and activities have stringent plans in place to reduce the risk of Covid-19, and these venues are classed as Covid secure given the measures they have introduced, and because government recognises the importance of sport and physical activity for people’s health and wellbeing.
ADDITIONAL RACE DAY ADVICE:
Arrive wearing a mask and keep this on until you get to the start line where you can dispose of your mask in bins provided. You do not have to wear this during the run.
Please wherever possible, do not bring any baggage to the event. This is to protect both yourself and our staff.
Please respect social distancing before, during and after the completion of your run.
Immediately upon finishing we request that you make your way to the Gardens exit where in Brentford Car Park you will find water, goody bags and medals. It is of critical importance that the area around the finish line is kept clear to ensure everyone’s safety.
We know you may want to congratulate other runners on a great run, but please refrain from doing so in a physical way!
Please remember to carry out a COVID-19 self assessment accessible at: https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19.
