Now in its third year, the Whole Foods Market WomenOnly Run features five, ten and fifteen kilometre distances on closed roads in the idyllic autumnal setting of London’s Richmond Park.
The park, at almost 2,500 acres, is the largest of the Royal Parks and is home to some of the capital city’s most varied and colourful wildlife including 650 free roaming deer. The one-lap course (15km is one lap of 10km course plus one lap of 5km course) winds its way through the park’s pastoral landscape of ponds, gardens and grasslands set among ancient woodland, keeping to completely traffic-free, tarmac roads at all times.
This is the perfect event for any ladies looking to move away from the larger mass-participation events out there and towards something quieter and more intimate, all while retaining all those little creature comforts a well-organised event should always include. With the three distances, the Whole Foods Market WomenOnly Run is the perfect event for all the female members of the family to try, while the finish area will feature a varied mix of distractions to keep the men happy - when they are not busy cheering of course!
Something for Everyone
With 15km, 10km, 5km and ‘Run with your Buggy’ options, there’s no excuse not to get involved! What’s more, the course lends itself perfectly for friends and family to support and cheer you on and once again Breast Cancer Care are on board as official charity so you can use the challenge to raise money for a great cause.
Whether you are an experience athlete or a first-time jogger, the Whole Foods Market WomenOnly Run offers a great opportunity to run on closed roads through one of London’s most beautiful autumnal scenes.
Warm up and Cool down
Before each event there will be a 15 minute warm up to get you ready for your run and after the event there will be the opportunity to take part in a 15 minute yoga cool-down session to make sure you’re stretched out and properly warmed-down after your exertions.
Every finisher will receive a quality, event-specific medal to wear with pride. Special blue WomenOnly technical t-shirts are also available to buy with your entry and will be sent out to runners a week before the event ready to wear on the day.
