Where’d we go?

The 5km offered up two lovely grassy loops of the Old Deer Park.

The Sunday started with a small loop in Kew gardens, before heading out West along the south side of the Thames. The half marathon went down to Teddington lock before looping back to Richmond to finish on the Old deer Park. The full marathon continued all the way to Kingston before heading back to Richmond, finishing up where the half did too!


That the festival hosts a distance for everyone! 

We Struggled…

It was actually pretty toasty on the day and things started to get a little hot as the marathon was coming to an end.

Why this Race…

It’s super flat and it’s a wonderful way to explore Richmond and Kew.

Famous Faces…

We have got to give a shout out to H’s boyfriend Rhys who took on this run as his first-ever marathon, and absolutely smashed it out the park!

Mid run Brainwave…

Happy Birthday to H!

Rocket Fuel…

Our trusty margarita Cliff Blocks, and a flapjack or two for H!

Number 1 Fan…

The Richmond lululemon team who stood at the finish line on both days whooping and cheering!
