Richmond RUNFEST Marathon 2019

Join us

Richmond RUNFEST is a great alternative to the London Marathon.

Come and run in the beautiful surroundings of London’s Royal Botanical Gardens, along the River Thames and through Old Deer Park. Take in the nature and greenery as you run, as well as free entry into the botanical gardens which you can enjoy with family and friends after the race.

Another big attraction of the Richmond Marathon and Half Marathon is its flat course - no hills to contend with! And, to top it all off, you end the race with a beer and music festival!

How to enter

We would love to have you on the team for this year's Richmond RUNFEST Marathon. We ask that you pledge to raise a minimum sponsorship of £600 (excluding gift aid), and there’s a £30 registration fee. (The registration fee is payable to Macmillan Cancer Support Trading Limited which is wholly owned subsidiary of Macmillan Cancer Support. Macmillan Cancer Support Trading Limited donates 100% of its profits to Macmillan Cancer Support each year).

If you are lucky enough to get a spot in the Richmond RUNFEST Marathon then we'd love to have you on our team - simply click the ‘I have my own place’ button. There’s no minimum sponsorship, just raise as much as you can!

What do I get as part of #TeamMacmillan?

Whichever way you choose to join, as part of Team Macmillan, we’ll make sure you have:

  • Our bumper fundraising pack, access to our online training zone and loads of fundraising tips and tricks.
  • Your free Team Macmillan technical running vest or t-shirt, plus iron on letters to customise your kit.
  • Regular e-newsletters keeping you in the loop in the lead up to race day.
  • And of course... the loudest and most supportive cheerers on the course!

    Most importantly we will provide you with a reason to put in those months of training and fundraising, because you know that your efforts are going towards improving the lives of people living with cancer in the UK today.

    Why be part of the green team?

    We want to use this amazing event to make a difference. We know cancer can affect everything; your body, your relationships, your money, everything. But we are here to help people live life, no matter what. We give them the support they need to hold on to who they are and what’s important.

    But we can’t do it without you. Join Team Macmillan for Richmond RUNFEST and we will treat you like the superhero you are from the moment you sign up through to when you cross the finish line. Life with cancer is still a life. Join Team Macmillan and help people live it.

    The minimum age for this event is 18 years old.
