Event description

The Richmond RUNFEST is organised by RUNFEST LTD. The aim is to organise a fun local event involving the whole family and the local community. You will see from our aims that we wish to include everything that is great about the Borough of Richmond and share this beautiful place with the world.

From the outset, the event has looked to incorporate all the wonderful examples we have witnessed from all corners of the running world. At RUNFEST we do not like to use the word 'NO' and look to incorporate as many peoples ideas and inspiration as possible. We started this event as a blank canvas and continue to add pencil thin structure and lots of colour to it as we go along.

We hope this is just the start of a wonderful journey for the RUNFEST team and hope to include many people from the running community. If you have any colour that you think will look good on the canvas and want to get involved then please get in touch and help us achieve something different!

Volunteering opportunities

Volunteers, we need your help!

Any community event like us cannot happen without the help of volunteers. Volunteer posts vary in time so even if you have a couple of hours to offer we would love to have you!

Roles vary from welcome marshals, course marshals, baggage, waterstation and finish line volunteers.

Please click on the icon below and complete the registration form for this year (15th and 16th September). Once completed you will automatically be added to our volunteer list and our external volunteer coordinator will be in touch to provide you with all the info you need. We will allocate you the day and time of your choice.

Volunteer package

Our volunteers receive a NIKE technical t-shirt and after your shift we welcome you to the Volunteer VIP BBQ after-party with free beer, burgers, snacks and soft drinks located next to the music festival at the finish line. Our volunteer after party is your reward for being brilliant!
