The Dorking Ten Mile Road Race and Cockerel 10k


The 2020 Dorking Tens was cancelled due to the Covid19 virus. We hope the 35th Dorking 10 Mile Road Race and the 3rd Cockerel 10K, will now take place on Sunday 6th June 2021 but we cannot promise at this time. At the moment the race is NOT open for entries, please watch this space for details.

The Dorking Tens is a true family friendly event, with races for both committed athletes and recreational runners alike, refreshments, entertainment and retail stalls at our Dorking Rugby Club hub. As always with DMVAC events, we welcome and actively encourage wheelchair and disabled runners to participate.​ There are also children's races.

The Race HQ is based in the Dorking Rugby Football Clubhouse. Car parking and the finish is on the Big Field, Kiln Lane, Brockham, RH3 7LR. The race starts on Brockham Green which is a 5 minute walk from Race HQ.

In 2017 a cut-off was introduced at the junction of Snowerhill and Wellhouse Road for the 10 Mile race. This is the point (3 &  1/3 miles) where runners turn left to complete the first loop. Anyone entered in the 10 Mile race reaching this point after 40 minutes from the race start will be directed straight ahead towards Betchworth bridge (towards the finish).

Please note that the use of Ipods/MP3 players/Headphones (including bone conduction) during the race is banned for safety reasons. Anyone breaking this rule will be disqualified.​
