Run through London's greenest borough including Kew Gardens, Richmond Bridge and the Tow Path. With three famous bridges, two Royal Palaces and one famous river this race has been described as "the world's most scenic marathon! "Like the Richmond Half and Kew Gardens 10k, Richmond Marathon starts inside Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
Due to Covid-19 and social distancing, all runners will be given an arrival time to avoid congestion. Friends and family of runners might not be able to spectate inside Kew Gardens, however, all are welcome to enter Kew Gardens free of charge afterwards to make a day of it (this will be reviewed in February, closer to event weekend).
