The Cabbage Patch 10
Founded in 1982 by Frank Dupree, landlord of the Cabbage Patch pub in Twickenham, and Malcolm Ellis, the Cabbage Patch 10 miler starts and ends in Twickenham, passing through Kingston and Richmond for a double-crossing of the Thames. So fast and flat is the course that Richard Nerurkar’s 1993 finishing time of (deep breathe) 46.02 still stands as a world record.
The Cabbage Patch 10 takes place in a beautiful part of London and affords interesting views for runners and supporters alike – plus there’s the allure of having the HQ at a pub… The likes of Mo Farah, Ann Ford, Paula Fudge and Mara Yamauchi have all tested their legs at the Cabbage Patch 10 – all the more reason for you to do the same.
Race entry is £23 unaffiliated and £21 affiliated and includes chip timing and free entry into a raffle to win a bike (so you can cycle home.)
