The Thames Towpath Run is back after a break, organised by the West 4 Harriers and sponsored by The Swan Pub. The event will take place on Sunday, 7 April, starting at 8.30am from the new location at Old Deer Park in Richmond.

The 10-mile race, which has been running for 30 years, will follow a scenic route along the Thames Towpath, passing landmarks such as Kew Gardens and Chiswick Bridge.

The course, known for its flat terrain, will challenge runners with varied landscapes. Mile markers and water stations will be available along the route, and participants are encouraged to bring their own soft cups to reduce waste.

In addition to the race, amenities such as chip-to-chip timing and physiotherapy services will be provided. Up & Running East Sheen will be supporting the race, with a shop stall for all your running needs. Physiotherapist services from SOS Steve O’Shea will be on site.

Prizes will be awarded to overall and age category winners, and everyone who participates will win a custom pint glass.

Organisers hope at least 500 people will join the race.
