A Weekend at Richmond Runfest…
The team headed down to Deer park for a weekend of fun at Richmond Runfest. Runfest celebrates running over two jam packed days involving the whole family and community. The weekend starts with the Kew Gardens 10k where it starts and finishes inside Kew Gardens, believed to be one of the most beautiful starts to running in the whole of Europe. The NIKE Kids’ Mile is at the heart of the festival located at Old Deer Park. The Sunday hosts the Richmond Half and Full Marathon finishing at Deer park at the heart of the festival, and of course the last event of the day was also the family fun run ending the brilliant celebration of running!
The team headed down to help reenergise and hydrate the runners and spectators over the weekend. We welcomed runners to our reenergising hub to help refuel and recover post run. We were there to help the runners reenergise straight over the finish line too, handing out ice cold refreshing Mahtay!
On Sunday after the gruelling marathon we had sports massages ready for those post run, the best way perfect to recover.
To get into the festival spirit we had an insane glitter tent! Adding some post run sparkle to enjoy and celebrate the rest of the day. We glittered up all the families so they looked fab in time for their family mile!
We had such a great time meeting and supporting everyone at Richmond Runfest this year and were proud to be one of the official sponsors of the event. Runfest not only brings the community together but also raises a huge amount of money for a variety of charities, 10% of all race entry fees are donated to local charities and all the runners raise money for the selected Runfest charities. We loved being a part of such a great event and will see you all next year!
