Richmond Marathon 2022
September 11 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm BST
Run through London’s greenest borough, including the Royal Botanical Kew Gardens, Richmond Bridge and the Tow Path to make it, “The Worlds most scenic Marathon!”
Like the Richmond Half and Kew Gardens 10k, the RUNFEST Marathon starts inside Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. The Marathon will finish in an all-day family fun music festival in Old Deer Park. This will be extra special this year as we will celebrate our 10th birthday! Every runner will be rewarded with one of our fabulous traditional triangular-shaped medals, as well as a technical running t-shirt (male & female cut).
“The Richmond Marathon finish was well organised with a great quality medal and lots of freebies and a t-shirt. The event village at the finish was vibrant and full of atmosphere. An event that I would definitely do again.”
