The Festival 

The festival is complete with live music, the Richmond Food & Fitness Expo and the Fuller’s bar (for the thirsty adults). We are delighted to have Brentford FC CST, Marathon Kids and Lions Sports Academy bringing a variety of multi-sport activities to entertain our kids throughout the afternoon.

Packet Pick Up 

Race packs must be collected on the day at the Kids Registration, located in Old Deer Park. Packet pick up will be open from 1pm to collect your child's race number and timing chip. 

The Start

The start and finish is located towards the back of Old Deer Park. Head to the large race arch 10 minutes before the race where Lions Sports Academy will be holding a fantastic and fun warm up for the kids. 

The Course 

The 1 mile course starts and finishes in the same place and forms 2 loops around Old Deer Park. The 500m race (for our Reception - Year 2) is only 1 loop. For the safety of our Kids, parents are NOT permitted inside the course. If you want to run with your child please keep outside the course parameter.

The Finish 

Parents are NOT allowed in this area. Children will be handed back to parents at the end of the finishing shoot once their parent is identified. We ask parents to assist our staff by being patient during this time. No child will be permitted to leave the Safe Zone without their parent/guardian to collect them.

The Me too & Co Accessible Mile

We are really excited to partner with Me too & Co to expand on our all-inclusive mile race for children with special needs in a friendly, non-competitive environment where every child is a winner and receives a finishers medal and prize at the end.

Me too & Co is an independent Richmond-upon-Thames based charity that provides activities and therapies for children with disabilities and additional needs. They also support and provide therapies, courses and information for their whole families.

In 2017, we moved the usual Sunday 'Kids' Mile & 500m' to Saturday. Reason is to increase capacity and have a specific children’s day... It was a blast!
