Kew Gardens 10k race
Starting at the Orangery, the 10k route will take you past the iconic Palm House, Pagoda and along the River Thames. The gardens will be closed to the public, so the race will follow all social distancing measures and will be fully marshalled.
Once you've finished the race you and your loved ones are welcome to stay and enjoy the gardens for the rest of the day, so this is a fantastic opportunity for a day out in one of London's most well known parks.
Whether this is your first ever race or you're a seasoned 10k runner, we have plenty of helpful resources and training tips to help you gear up for the event!
Congrats on securing your own place – we'd love to have you on board!
