London’s most exclusive race, Richmond RUNFEST’s Kew Gardens 10k, is now 95% full. There is an added bonus this year for the runners as they will not only be running through a World Heritage site, but this year they will also be running past dazzling Chihuly glass sculptures.
The 10k has grown in popularity since it was moved completely inside the flat Botanic Royal gardens. Runners also receive fabulous male and female cut Nike tech finisher tee’s, not to mention the amazing triangular shaped medals which slot in together to make a “pie”. It is London’s flattest 10k and is your only chance to run inside the wonderful Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew on Saturday 14th September, 2019. Last year it was won by double Commonwealth Games gold medallist Michael Shelley who ran it in 30:21.
The organisers recently released this year’s “Kew the Run” t-shirt which includes a Banksy inspired skyline of Kew Gardens. The fantastic golden heart medal links in with British Heart Foundation who are their 2019 Charity of the Year.
There are a record-breaking number of entries into this year’s race, which is part of the realbuzz Richmond RUNFEST weekend of events on the 14th and 15th September, including Richmond Half Marathon, Full Marathon, Kids’ Races, Family Mile, and their new 5k which is soon to be launched.
Runners have one last chance to enter the Kew Gardens 10k before it sells out for the third year in a row, click here now for more information.
