On 18th September 2016 the Richmond Marathon joins the Richmond Half Marathon and Kew Gardens 10k. Starting inside Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, the race will tour Richmonds greenest borough, and the highlight? Hampton Court Palace!

The Richmond Marathon course is one of the worlds most scenic races that allows runners to run past three historic bridges, two Royal Palaces, and one music festival.

This event has been three years in the making and would not have happened without the great support of Kew Gardens, Hampton Court Palace, Richmond and Kingston Council.

‘Richmond RUNFEST’ was inspired by the Great London Olympics four years ago and it is an honor to create an event that runs past the exact spot where Bradley Wiggins made Olympic history.

With only 1,000 public entries it is expected the race will sell out early.
