The DH10 is a 10 mile multi terrain race which is organised annually by Lingfield Running Club. It has been a popular feature of the running calendar for many years and it attracts up to 200 mixed ability runners each year. The DH5 is a 5 mile multi terrain race that was introduced 2012 and is growing in popularity each year and typically attracts runners of all abilities from the “fun” runner to the “seasoned” runner.


The DH10 & DH5 races always take place on the first Sunday in September and this year this falls on the 6th September. The race starts at 10.30am from the Young Epilepsy center in St Piers lane, Lingfield. Entries to both races are very reasonably priced and you are able to enter the race in advance or on the day at the race venue HQ (see Lingfield Running Club website for further details: http://lingfieldrunningclub.co.uk).

The race itself takes the runner through some spectacular Surrey and Kent countryside and the course is designed such that it is predominately all off road, so much so, that you are probably more likely to meet a horse than a car during your run. Both races are extremely very well signposted and marshalled so runners need not worry about getting lost. There are refreshments for starters, finishers and spectators at the race HQ in St Piers lane and water stations are located at 5 miles and 7.5 miles on the DH10 course. There are prizes for race and category winners plus all participants receive a quality medal and goody bag.

Each year, Lingfield Running Club supports local, regional or national charities from the profits of the DH10 & DH5 races. Last year we were able to donate £500 to the Kent, Sussex and Surrey Air Ambulance and this year we are hoping to raise a similar amount in support of two charities; Surrey Search and Rescue and St Catherine’s Hospice.

Lingfield Running Club was formed in 1983 and has been an integral part of village life ever since. The running club operates from the Lingfield Victoria Sports & Social Club in the heart of the village. The running club has a 50:50 split of male and female members and has active runners from 20 years old to 70+ years old. Lingfield Running Club currently has around 150 members, and we are able to offer guidance and coaching to new and current members whether their aspiration is to just run short distances socially or whether they are planning or contemplating taking part in longer distance events such as a 10K, marathon or even an ultra-marathon!
