Details

wonderful 2019 half marathon distance trail run held entirely within Richmond Park. We start off at Sheen Gate where the race HQ start and finish area will be and take runners off up to Richmond Gate and return back to Sheen Gate then we move on off through the centre of the park up to the White House and amazing views of the lakes in the park and hopefully lots of wildlife too. From there, the runners will head down to Robin Hood Gate and join the Tamsin trail path that snakes around the inner walls of the Royal Park, you climb up Broomfield Hill for the drinks station and then carry along towards Kingston Gate - the route continues along through some wooded area to Ham Gate where we will have another drinks / feed station to keep the runners going. The runners are sent off onto Petersham Gate with some amazing views of the Park and we turn around and return to Ham Gate and send runners up the main track along side the Queens Road where we will cross safely and return towards the main private road that runs through the centre of the park - this section is flat and fast and eventually the runners reach the White House and head back towards Sheen Gate and the finish area for the 13.1 mile distance. This is perfect training half for those challenging for a spring 2019 marathon
