Kew Gardens 10k - who wants to run London's flattest socially distanced 10K on 12th and 13th September?

2020 has been a year that defines uncertainty but also one of perseverance. Like many event organisers, the team behind Richmond RUNFEST may have postponed their half and full marathons to next April but persevered with their efforts to plan two socially distanced 10K events inside the beautiful Kew Gardens on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th September, 2020.

The team behind the Kew Gardens 10K have also announced as their new Event Title Partner!

“Our team have hired expert data analysts and moved mountains to plan the event in a socially distanced way. Covid-19 has not disappeared so we have been working hard with all of our stakeholders, medical team & British Athletics to create a fun, safe event and we are really excited to still be planning this years event*. The 2020 event is going to be very different to previous years but we look forward to putting on a safe event for our runners, volunteers, staff, contractors and the local community. We are also pleased to welcome to the event as they provide a gateway to thousands of inspiring, memorable and brilliantly sweaty experiences.” Tom Bedford, Race director.

“The partnership will help the event to reach many of the new beginner runners who have taken up the sport. We’re very excited to be partnering with Richmond RUNFEST on the Kew Gardens 10k. It’s the perfect way to celebrate the return of racing in a safe and considered environment” Jacob Hibberd, Co-founder.

Jacob added “It’s clearly a challenging time to put on an event. Tom and the team at Richmond RUNFEST have so much experience successfully staging large events. We’ve seen that first hand with all the planning gone it to making the 10k safe and fun”
