Love Running! Get all your friends and come and join us for our Spring Riverside 10k Run.
Entries close Thursday 22nd March at midnight!!
The location is amazing and the scenery is stunning. Running along the riverside from Richmond towards Kingston and back you have views of the river for most of the way.
Starting at the Riverside carpark off Ham Street (see course map) you will run along the riverside towards Kingston, then head back almost as far as Richmond before following the towpath back to Ham House to finish by the Riverside.
Check out a live view of the run via our garmin download. Please note this was done on a bike so ignore the time as we’re not that fast!!! Click here for more…

There is carparking at the Start/Finish point on Ham Street however this is limited so either arrive early or if possible leave the car at home!! Richmond mainline station is about 30 minutes walk. The course is along the riverside and its pretty much flat the whole way! Remember its all good fun and you can walk, jog or run!!

Macmillan Cancer Support improves the lives of people affected by cancer. One in three of us will get cancer. 2 million of us are living with it. We are all affected by cancer. We can all help. We are Macmillan.
As treatments improve, more and more people are living with cancer in their daily lives. This means they need more than medical help, they also need practical, emotional and financial support.
We are a source of support
We are a source of support, helping with all the things that people affected by cancer want and need. It’s not only patients who live with cancer, so we also help carers, families and communities. We guide people through the system, supporting them every step of the way. We fund nurses and other specialist health care professionals and build cancer care centres. But we give so much more than medical help.
People need practical support at home, so we provide anything from some precious time off for a carer, to a lift to hospital. People need emotional support, so we listen, advise and share information though our CancerLine, website, support groups and trained professionals. People need financial help to cope with the extra costs cancer can bring, so we give benefits advice, and grants for anything from heating bills to travel costs. Together we listen, we learn, we act to help people live with cancer.
We are a force for change
We are a force for change, listening to people affected by cancer and working together to improve cancer care. People who live with cancer are experts by experience. Together we use this knowledge to make a positive difference to the lives of people affected by cancer. This could be anything from getting a coffee machine installed in a waiting room, to bringing about changes in the law.
We fight discrimination – from challenging unfair travel costs and insurance policies to improving the national benefits system. Together we challenge the status quo, we push for change, we lead the way.
We are Macmillan
We believe we can all help. We can raise money – through marathons, coffee mornings, street collections, sponsored events. We can give time – at cancer care centres, events, fundraising groups. We can share experiences – online, in the media, with each other. We are Macmillan.
