Event information

Date: Saturday 9 - Sunday 10 April 2022
Location: Kew Gardens

Starting and finishing in the glorious grounds of Kew Gardens, Runfest's Spring event - Kew The Run - features a brand new 10k (replacing the original Kew Gardens 10k in the Autumn) and half marathon. Both events are held on flat, even surfaces and pass some of the most stunning horticulture that the Royal Botanic Gardens have to offer.

After the events, finishers and their families will be treated to an afternoon of live music and a picnic on the lawn.
