Both the half and marathon routes will start / finish at the Petersham & Ham Sea Cadets race HQ, Petersham Rd, Richmond, TW10 7AH.
Route to proceed from the Petersham & Ham Sea Cadets Start / Finish area HQ in situ, and the route will proceed all way along the Thames Path out towards Richmond town centre, past Kew Gardens all the way to Barns (opposite the Barnes Sports Club) which is the turnaround point. The course will then return to the Petersham & Ham Sea Cadets HQ. It is a 1 lap route for this out / back half marathon and a 2 lap route for the marathon course.
The route for both the races will be very well signposted with ﬁxed pink / black Hermes Running signs marking the run-route, and there will be marshals at both the turnaround points at Barns (opposite the Barnes Sports Club).The marathon runners will be given red race bib numbers and the half marathon runners will be allocated blue race bib numbers, this is to make it much easier for our marshals / runners to distinguish between the full and half, so if you see a runner ﬂying past you just check out their race bib before you decide to speed up!

David Ross (Race Director) Hermes Running
I ran my ﬁrst marathon in 1999 in South Africa called the Umgeni Water marathon (South Africa) and really enjoyed the challenge it presented. Since then I have notched up 392 marathons (including ultra’s) worldwide in the 18 years that I have been running. My present goal is to complete a marathon in every EEA member state, I’ve currently completed 24 of the 31 member states. I am the Comrades UK & Ireland Brand Ambassador and having completed the Comrades Ultra 12 times it’s been my passion to mentor other Comrades runners and help them achieve their aspirations and goals.
