The organiser

It’s always nice to know who is behind an event…

Run The Streets is managed by Richard Xerri, a long term athlete and a large contributor to voluntary service in the local athletics scene.

Richard manages the well known Salomon Citytrail™ Richmond half marathon, Summer Breeze Running Festival, The London Enduro 50km and 12 Hour Race and Run with the Girls.

Richard is the manager of the Surrey XC squad for children, a long-term member of Hercules Wimbledon AC, organises the Surrey 5k Championships on a voluntary basis and coaches locally with Ranelagh Harriers in Richmond upon Thames. He is also a physiotherapist with a clinical interest in knee pain and when he is not organizing running events, he manages a physiotherapy clinic in the centre of Richmond upon Thames.

Every race has a charity element at the very heart of its aims, supporting those who need help and assistance at difficult times. Your entry is much appreciated by all the charities involved in our work.

Over the last year Richard’s company Perserverance Events, has contributed around £20,000 to local good causes through the events he manages and created events that have raised in excess of £100,000 for the respective charities.
