It is with regret that we have to inform you that the half marathon event tomorrow at Richmond Park is unfortunately cancelled.
Following storm Eunice, there has been significant damage within Richmond Park and despite a day of hard work from the parks team, in an effort to reopen to the public tomorrow, the park has not been deemed safe to reopen. As you can see from the Richmond Park Facebook page HERE. Therefore we have been left with no option but to cancel the event and can only apologise for any inconvenience caused by this.
We held an event at Greenwich Park this morning at one of their other Royal Parks as you can see on their Twitter HERE it’s unfortunate that only some parks that have been affected.
This is sadly a decision taken completely out of our hands and not what we wanted to do, especially at this late notice. We at RunThrough pride ourselves on being able to put on safe events all year round so it’s only when we are told by the venue that an event cannot go ahead would we cancel an event at such short notice. We are fully prepared for the event, and have your medals, snacks, all our marshals and vendors ready to go! We are absolutely gutted!
If you’d like to put your training to the test and run the event virtually, you just need to record the half marathon distance in your own time on your own chosen route. Once completed, send us your times via email using your GPS watch, we will then add your time to our virtual ranking list and then post you out your well warned medal and snacks!

Including a 5k, 10k, 10 mile and half marathon race at Lee Valley Velopark next Saturday 26th February, a 5k, 10k and half marathon at nearby Kempton Park on Sunday 5th March,Wimbledon Common Half Marathon on April 10th, and multiple other Richmond Park options in April, June and July.
