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. It is also home to London’s flattest marathon and west London’s largest fundraising event (Richmond RUN-FEST).
There are so many running related things to do in Richmond.
