Nuffield Health Kingston Run Challenge

Now in its 27th year, the Nuffield Health Kingston Run Challenge takes over the centre of Kingston and the Thames towpath once again this October. With 3 distances on offer and a fast, flat course, runners can either smash their previous times or simply challenge themselves with a new distance. The event also includes the Nuffield Health Kingston Marathon – the perfect way to put your summer of training to the test! The end of season timing is a great opportunity for a PB and the course is one of the flattest 26.2s you’ll find, with a fantastic route passing stunning sights such as Hampton Court Palace.
