This is a Nice Work race
This means that this is an original Nice Work race, fully hosted and organised by us.

Event Overview:
The races take place within the picturesque setting of one of London's prettiest Royal Parks, the perfect setting for a pacy, traffic-free Sunday morning 10k. Or, if you prefer, why not take on the 5k option? The undulating course covers the tracks, trails and footpaths within the park and is suitable for runners of all abilities, with beginners particularly welcome. The race features chip timing.  You will pass around various sections of the park through Sheen Wood and past the Teck Plantation. You will also pass Bishops Pond and Richmond Gate. You may even be lucky enough to spot one of the many roaming herds of Red or Fallow Deer that have been known to watch the race as you pass down Sawyers Hill on a few occasions. 
Remember to dress to impress Santa as there will be a special prize for the best dressed runner!

Course Details:
The Richmond 10k course is a two lap route covering the paths and trails within the boundaries of Richmond Park.  The route is an undulating course with no significantly testing hills and covers a selection of hard track, tarmac with a small section on grass.  The course has been measured using a GPS and, because of its multi terrain nature, cannot carry an official course measurement certificate.
