The ’10-Kilometre Richmond Spring River Route Run’ was organised by The Fix UK and held on Sunday 22nd March 2014.

It started at 9:30am and participants completed the run around 11am.

The start was at riverside car-park off Ham Street Richmond. The course went along the river path towards Kingston. Before finally following the toe path back to the start.

The challenge Fix had was how to enable around 1000 runners to safely move along the toe- path used by cyclists and walkers.

The unique attraction of the run was it took place along the Thames and featured Teddington Lock.

The winning time on-the-day was 34:32 by Jamie Hinton with an average split pace of 3.27min/km.

The event is run three times a year in spring, summer and autumn. The runners support the Macmillan Cancer Support along with other charities.

The Fix UK are also involved with local runs such as upcoming Richmond Park five and ten kilometre runs later this month and triathlons up and down the country.

The next river-bank run is in the summer on Saturday 26th July.
