In 2021 Ranelagh 10k is run in Support of Nick and Kathy Henry and Cancer Research UK.
Nick was diagnosed with Gall Bladder Cancer in June 2021 after finding a lump in his neck.
Gall Bladder Cancer is relatively rare, especially for men Nick’s age (47) as it is more common in women, and over 75’s. Just over 1000 people are diagnosed in the U.K. each year.
Nick and Kathy both found running in their forties, with Nick starting first and Kathy annoying the hell out of him for getting faster than him! They are both members of local running clubs (Richmond Running Club and Ranelagh Harriers) and are regularly spotted at Old Deer Park parkrun.
When you register for the race you’ll be given the opportunity to add a donation to their campaign, please do so generously!
This is a fast 10k in a great location near Richmond Upon Thames, with scenic views of the river and trees around Teddington Lock and Ham House. The flat two-lap course is run partly on roads and the Thames Towpath, providing a great opportunity for a new PB!
From the grassy start, runners head along Riverside Drive towards Kingston, before turning right onto the service road leading down to Teddington Lock, and then left before the lock onto the higher riverside towpath. The course then runs along the towpath before turning left onto Lower Ham Road and continuing onto Richmond Road, Dukes Avenue, Dysart Avenue, Burnell Avenue, Beaufort Road and before turning left back onto Riverside Drive.
The second lap begins with a left hand turn towards Teddington Lock and round again. After completing the second lap, runners will continue along Riverside Drive towards the finish.
Each kilometre will be marked out and marshals will be at all turns on the route. There is one water station on the course and runners will pass this twice, at approximately 2.4km and 6.5km. Water will also be available at the finish.
Please always be aware of other road users, runners, cyclists, and spectators.
Roads will not be closed to traffic. While running you must keep to the left-hand side of the road, run on the pavement where possible, and observe the Highway Code.
Unfortunately, the course is not suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs. Blind or partially sighted runners may be accompanied; other runners must not be accompanied or followed by others on bicycles. Dogs and headphones are not permitted in the race.
