Organiser's Description

Here Comes Summer!
We are delighted to be returning to Richmond Park for another rousing race!! 

This is a Nice Work race
This means that this is an original Nice Work race, fully hosted and organised by us.

Event Overview:
The races take place within the picturesque setting of one of London's prettiest Royal Parks, the perfect setting for a pacy, traffic-free Summer Sunday morning 10k. Or, if you prefer, why not take on the 5k option? The undulating course covers the tracks, trails and footpaths within the park and is suitable for runners of all abilities, with beginners particularly welcome. You will pass around various sections of the park through Sheen Wood and past the Teck Plantation. You will also pass Bishops Pond and Richmond Gate. You may even be lucky enough to spot one of the many roaming herds of Red or Fallow Deer that have been known to watch the race as you pass down Sawyers Hill on a few occasions!

Course Details:
The Richmond 10k course is two laps and the 5k is a single lap route covering the paths and trails within the boundaries of Richmond Park.  The route is an undulating course with no significantly testing hills and covers a selection of hard track, tarmac with a small section on grass.  The course has been measured using a GPS and because of its multi terrain nature, cannot carry an official course measurement certificate. 

Available Races/Distances:
10k / 5k

Prizes:
Bespoke medal for all finishers.
Trophy for 1st male and female winners (10k & 5k distances)
Trophies for age category winners (10k only)

Prizes are generously sponsored by Sporting Feet, who have stores in Putney and Richmond.   Special spot prize with a £20 voucher for one lucky runner.

On-the-day Entry Fees (subject to availability only):
10K race: £30.00
5K race: £25.00

Event information will be sent to all registered entrants prior to race-day.

A fantastic course. It was my first 5k race and I was really surprised at how easy it was to register. It was also easy to follow as there were wardens along the route to show you where to go and markers at each kilometre. They also clapped and cheered you on when you passed them which really spurs you on! It was a challenge as there was uphill. Richmond Park is a fab location as it’s lovely and we even saw some deer and stag on the run! Totally fab! Wendy
