Richmond Running Routes

We have teamed up with Visit Richmond to offer some advice on how you can RUN RICHMOND!
Did you know the borough of Richmond-Upon-Thames is the epicentre of British running history? It was the birthplace of the London Marathon and parkrun. Mo Farah was finely tuned up as an Olympic gold machine at St Mary’s University and even the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew played a part in raising the Olympic spirit going into the London 2012, celebrating ‘100 days to go’ and the Olympic Torch relay. The best part of the Borough of Richmond is that you can run through it all for free!
