ABOUT THE KEW 10K
This beautiful 10k will take place on fully closed roads inside the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in Southwest London on the 1st April 2023. This 10K has historically taken place as part of the GoFundMe Richmond RUN-FEST events in September, and has now moved to join the new GoFundMe KEW THE RUN series alongside the Kew Gardens Half Marathon and Kew The Mile. This is London’s flattest 10k so with good training you’ll run a personal best and the perfect opportunity to get a fast run in ahead of the London Marathon.
The Kew Gardens 10K route will take you on a flat, quick and scenic route of Kew Gardens. It will include all of the key attractions of Kew Gardens – Palm House, Temperate House and The Hive.
After the events, finishers and their families* can explore London’s no. 1 visited tourist attraction Kew Gardens that holds 50,000 living plants to be found across the UNESCO World Heritage site.

FREE ADMISSION FOR YOUR SPECTATORS
* Kew Gardens is a ticketed venue so we are delighted that your race entry also allows an additional 2x adults and 2x children (U16) to enter with you FREE of charge when you arrive for the race!
Important: For your spectators to access this free entry they will need to be in the Gardens via Brentford Gate before the gates close at 08:30am for our private run, therefore they will need to enter Ferry Lane no later than 08:15am. Once the gates close there is no admission until they re-open to only paying customers. Once you are in Kew Gardens you can remain there for the rest of the day but you cannot exit and then re-enter without paying the standard entry fee.
Race Packs will be collected from Sporting Feet, Richmond (9 King St, London TW9 1ND) from 1st April and they will also be available to be collected on the morning of your race (more info on this TBC).

Flat, tarmac, professional measured and certified. London's flattest 10K!
This is still London's flattest 10k and even flatter than last years Kew Gardens 10k. The new course has net drop of 5ft and only a total of 63ft gain the whole course. The new course now starts outside the Hive on the beautiful Broadwalk and finishes outside the famous Palm House. The perfect spot for a pre London Marathon training run.
