Kew Gardens 10K @ Richmond Runfest
Run the Kew Gardens 10K @ Richmond Runfest.
Part of Richmond Runfest, the Kew Gardens 10K is a unique run that takes in one of the UK's most iconic gardens. Located next to the Thames in West London, Kew Gardens has been at the forefront of horticulture and plant research for decades. This scenic flat run is always a sell-out and your entry fee gives free access to your supporters into the gardens, which makes this event a fabulous day out. Oh and there is also a free drink at the end!
The Kew Gardens 10k run takes you past the famous Palm House and the Temperate House, which are some of the most impressive glass structures ever built. As the course is flat and takes place on roads and paths within the garden's boundaries, it is ideal for new and seasoned runners alike. Those new to 10k races can enjoy the scenery and the challenge of their first 10K race, while experienced runners can aim to beat their PBs.
The Richmond Runfest has several running events held in and around the Richmond area, including the Richmond Marathon and the Richmond Half Marathon. If you are looking for a family event, then perhaps sign up for the Kids Sat Mile. Whether you take part in the Kew Gardens 10k run or another 10k charity run in London, you can run to raise funds for Alder Hey Children’s Charity. Find out how you can run for charity here.
