On 16th April, the race organisers confirmed this event has been postponed from the 16th May 2021 to a new date in September (specific date TBC). If you had already registered for the original date, all runners will be contacted with their options.

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.
