The Dorking Ten Mile Road Race and Cockerel 10k


This year the 36th Dorking 10 Mile Road Race and the 3rd Cockerel 10K took place on Sunday 11 July 2021. You can view a summary video of the event (about 7 mins) on YouTube filmed and narrated by Rob McCaffrey.

The Dorking Tens is a true family friendly event, with races for both committed athletes and recreational runners alike.  Normally we would be providing refreshments, entertainment and retail stalls in the Event Village but due to COVID-19 restrictions this will not be possible this year. The HQ will still be at the Dorking Rugby Club hub. As always with DMVAC events, we welcome and actively encourage wheelchair and disabled runners to participate.​ Normally we would have children’s races as well but again COVID-19 restrictions have meant that we have had to drop this for this year.

Car parking and the finish is on the Big Field, Kiln Lane, Brockham, RH3 7LR. A restricted number of toilets will be available at the Rugby Club to comply with Covid 19 regulations.  The race starts on Brockham Green which is a 5 minute walk from Race HQ.  Runners will be invited to move to Brockham Green in small groups in accordance with their Race Numbers.
