ABOUT THE HALF
The new Half Marathon will take place on Sunday 10th April, on closed roads inside Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, before venturing down the Richmond towpath to finish back at Kew Gardens. This brand-new and completely flat Half Marathon joins the 10K in the new KEW THE RUN series.
ABOUT KEW THE RUN
Kew The Run is a weekend that hosts the Kew Gardens 10K on 9th April and the Kew Gardens Half Marathon on 10th April. The 10K will take on a new course running entirely inside a flat Kew Gardens. The Half will start and finish inside Kew whilst taking on an additional flat and scenic route of the Richmond Riverside.
After the events, finishers and their families will be treated to an afternoon of acoustic live music and a picnic (bring your own or purchase on the day) on the lawn.
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 before the gates close at 08:30am for our private run. 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.
Full professional cover in place throughout the course.
The entire course will be fully marshalled. Marshalls are volunteers so please say thanks to these amazing people!
A sweep Marshall will be present to assist athletes who do not complete the course and will be transported to the finish line.
