North Downs Half-Marathon & 10K

June 25 All day

Run for the first time in 2021; this wonderful trail half marathon and 10K showcases the best of Denbies vineyard as well as the surrounding Surrey Hills. It’s not an easy course, but there are no easy routes up and down the North Downs Escarpment.  The run is practically around the paths of the Denbies estate before heading out to the Pilgrims way taking in views of the North Downs before running back via the North Downs way and through the vines to finish at Denbies. The 10K largely follows the first 3 miles and the last three miles of the half-marathon route.

This event is now DOG-FRIENDLY with a canicross-only wave, medals for doggies that cross the finish line and a separate canicross prize category! Scroll down for more information!
