Royal Borough of Kingston Spring Raceday 8M, 16M & 20M

We are re-introducing the two classic “breakfast run” distances in Spring 2019. The new Royal Borough of Kingston Spring Raceday takes place on Sunday 31 March with runners completing either one or two laps of the famous “Kingston Loop”. The 8 mile race is a great distance for runners moving into longer distances or those more experienced wanting to start their 2019 race season.

The 16 mile race is a great distance for runners moving up from the Half Marathon distance or those training for a spring marathon. 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 the 8 mile race. The 16 milers will continue to run a second lap before crossing the line.

This year, by popular demand, the 8 Mile & 16 Mile runs 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.
