The Richmond Family Mile is a funrun for all ages. This is NOT a race and the intention is to allow the whole family get involved (especially children). There is NO time limit for entrants. Every runner with a bib receives a RUNFEST triangle medal and NIKE Tee shirt at the end.
Sunday 15th September | 3PM
The Kids’ Mile, created after the 2012 Olympics with the help of NIKE UK, is part of our Olympic Legacy. Our little runners will be supported by TEAM GB Olympians on the day and with the help of our partner NIKE, every child will be chip timed and receive the best NIKE race t-shirt and cool medal. The race starts in Old Deer Park with live music cheering on our stars of the future.

Race packs are NOT posted, you must collect all race packs on the day at the info tent, located in Old Deer Park.
Packet pick up will be open from 11:30am to collect your families race number and timing chip.
You will collect your NIKE T-shirt and medals will be rewarded after the race at the finish line.
The start and finish is located towards the back of Old Deer Park. Head to the large race arch 10mins before the race to warm up with our GB athletes.
The 1 mile course starts and finishes in the same place this year and loops around Old Deer Park in an out and back course.
Parents are NOT allowed in this area. Children running by themselves will be handed back to parents at the end of the finishing shoot once the 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 festival is complete with live music, the Richmond Food & Fitness Expo and the London Pride bar and champagne tent (for the thirsty adults).
