The realbuzz.com Richmond RUNFEST team has launch a new 5k race – the Richmond Sundown 5K. This will be an evening race in Richmond Upon Thames, London, UK, starting at 19:00 on Saturday 14 September during the Richmond RUNFEST weekend. Participants can watch the sun go down as they make their way around the 5K course and finish with a special music after-party where vocalists Sharlene & Vula from dance act Basement Jaxx will be headlining.
The organisers note that ‘This 5K course is fun and flat with entertainment every 500m to keep the runners going! Each participant will receive a fantastic medal and a beer at the end.’
The 5K follows on from the Richmond Kids’ events in the afternoon where there is also entertainment for younger runners, so the whole family can have fun and be active throughout the day. In addition to this is the Richmond Fitness Expo and a variety of food vendors for post-run refuelling.
Race Director, Tom Bedford said “Music is an important element to a RUNFEST event so we are super excited to have Sharlene and Vula performing with their band. It does not matter if you walk it, jog it or run it. Just ‘Do your thing’ and join us on 14 September! “
