About the event

Ranelagh Harriers’ annual half marathon race dates back to 1980 and is a fast and flat course that runs through Richmond and Twickenham, down to Hampton Court Bridge, and back up along the Thames towpath to Ham.

The race is part of the Ranelagh Harriers’ Summer Road Grand Prix and its half marathon road championships race. It is also the Surrey Half Marathon Championships and part of the Surrey Road League.

The race starts on Petersham Road, just up from the junction with Star and Garter Hill, and heads initially to Richmond Bridge. Runners cross the bridge, joining Richmond Road, which they follow into Twickenham before joining the river opposite the famous Eel Pie Island.

By Diamond Jubilee Gardens, the route leaves the river, follows Cross Deep past Radnor Gardens, and proceeds along Twickenham Road to the left-hand turn down Ferry Road near Teddington Lock. 

The course then heads right, along Broom Road, which becomes Lower Teddington Road. 

The route passes under Kingston Bridge, after which it follows Hampton Court Road to Hampton Court Bridge.

At the bridge, runners turn left onto Barge Walk and follow the towpath, with views to the left of the majestic Hampton Court Palace and the golf club back to Kingston Bridge. 

The course passes under Kingston Bridge a second time and then over it before heading around the back of John Lewis, where it rejoins the towpath once more.

From there, the route passes through Canbury Gardens, and it then follows Lower Ham Road, passing in front of the main entrance to the Hawker Centre, the site of the former aircraft factory. Runners head left along Dukes Avenue and then left again onto Dysart Avenue before turning right onto Burnell Avenue.

There is then another right turn onto Beaufort Road and a left onto Hardwicke Road before rejoining Dukes Avenue on the left. This becomes Riverside Drive, alongside Ham Lands, with a right-hand bend that leads to the finish on the grass near the post-race HQ, Richmond, and Kew FC.

This is an excellent event on open roads and a great opportunity to run a new half marathon PB!
