Now in its second year following the iconic “breakfast run” format, the Kingston Spring Raceday returns on March 29th 2020.
Quicksilver Running are pleased to announce that the 8 mile and 16 mile races will return following the highly successful 2019 event. This year, by popular demand, they are joined by a new 20 mile distance. The 8 mile runners will complete one lap of the famous “Kingston Loop”, while the 16 and 20 milers will complete it twice. The 20 mile course then takes in a final 4 miles following the river out to North Kingston. All races start and finish in Kingston’s Ancient Market Place.
The 8mile is a great introduction to racing over long distances or a shorter distance for those getting ready for 2020 who haven’t been training heavily over the winter or are recovering from injury.
The 16 mile and 20 mile races are ideally placed for Marathon training, falling just 4 weeks before the London Marathon and 3 weeks prior to Brighton.
Starting in the famous Ancient Market Place, runners will cross over Kingston Bridge and head up the iconic three mile stretch of the Barge Walk beside the Thames. The race then reaches the magnificent Hampton Court Palace before continuing through Thames Ditton and back towards Kingston Market Place. Here is the finish for all distances.
All three distances offer the opportunity to run on a fast and scenic route with great PB potential and chill out afterwards over coffee and croissants on the Kingston riverside!
