Run for our Official Charities of the Year 2017


We are proud to announce that Macmillan Cancer Support and The Kew Foundation are the official charities of the Richmond RUNFEST 2017 event. Please find out more about them below.     




Macmillan Cancer Support

One in three of us will get cancer, and it will be one of the toughest things we’ll ever have to face. By 2030 there will be 4 million people living with cancer in the UK, and we want to be there for them all.

Our goal at Macmillan is to make sure no one faces cancer alone. We provide medical, emotional, practical and financial support, as well as campaigning for better cancer care. And because cancer affects more than just those facing it, we’re there for friends and family too.

But we can’t do this without your help, so sign up today to become a part of Team Macmillan.

The Kew Foundation      

Around 25% of Kew’s income is from generous individuals, trusts, and other philanthropy. Our two beautiful and historic sites are among the world’s most-loved public gardens. Places where plants are cherished and celebrated – and where future generations come to learn.

Kew is finding plant-based solutions to global challenges such as biodiversity loss, food security, poverty, disease and changing climate. Our scientists are discovering new ways of using plants for the benefit of people, while working hard to conserve and restore the world's habitats, particularly those most in danger.


Contact Alex Stephenson if you want to take up the challenge to help save the world’s plants while running in our beautiful Gardens.
