Route information
This undulating, multi-terrain course takes place within and around the stunning Denbies Wine Estate. All routes offer beautiful views over the Mole Valley, Ranmore Common, and the North Downs, and runners are welcome to run as quickly as possible or take their time and enjoy the wine sampling stations on the route.
The drinks stations are what separates this event from all the others. But, not just any old drinks stations, the last two along the route serve wine and food and soft drinks. After the race, enjoy the hog roast, where the party carries on well into the evening.
A completely traffic-free course, all routes start and finish by the main building at Denbies, and there’s only one crossing of a significant road directed by marshals.
