Richmond Marathon

Event date: Coming soon

Slip into your running shoes for every dog and cat with the Richmond Marathon around the stunning Richmond Park on Saturday 27 March 2021. This is London’s flattest marathon, with no hills, so is a great first marathon for beginners and equally for more experienced runners who want to achieve a PB.

You will start in Kew Gardens, then travel along the curve of the Thames and through Old Deer Park, soaking up the best of what South West London has to offer. With three famous bridges, two Royal Palaces and one famous river this race has been described as "the Worlds most scenic Marathon!”.
