Running at Kempton Park is back with the option of a 5k, 10kHalf and Full Marathon at the famous Kempton Park Racecourse!

A new series of races organised by Quicksilver Running and RUNFEST EVENTS within the flat Kempton Park Racecourse grounds. All distances are officially measured. We have four distances comprising 5k, 10k and half & full marathon every distance is on fully closed roads and paths.

All races start and finish outside the famous racecourse finish line grandstand so the music and atmosphere will be electric. The pleasant open aspect promises to deliver fast times and a fun event against a scenic backdrop.

Frequently Asked Questions

I want to run with my friend who lives with me, how can we make sure we start at the same time?

Start waves will be carefully allocated based on predicted time. While we cannot guarantee two runners will be in the same start wave, entering the same race and giving the same predicted time will increase your chances.

What is the course like?

The course is a fast, flat route with a few turns on hard-packed paths.

Will there be somewhere to leave bags on the day?

Yes, you will be able to leave small bags in our baggage area on Event Day, however this is likely to be very busy so we would encourage you to leave items with one of your supporters if possible. You will need your phone to access the event, so please plan to run with it if possible.

What happens if I do not receive my race pack prior to the event?

If you do not receive your race pack before the event, you will be able to collect a replacement pack from one of our Info Points on Event Day. We’ll email all runners further details on this in the week before the event.

Will there be results?

Yes, there will be results published within 12 hours of the completion of the event. Please come back to this website.
