The Lingfield 10s are scenic and challenging multi-terrain races located in the rural South East corner of Surrey. There are two races, a ten mile or a 10k.
The races are based on what was previously the Dry Hill 10 and the Greathead Gallop. The main difference is that the races now start and finish at Lingfield College rather than at Young Epilepsy.
Organised and marshalled by Lingfield Running club, the 10 mile race has been a popular fixture in the race calendar for many years. The 10 mile route is hilly, but incredibly scenic with some stunning views along the top loop, plus more hills! The 10k is also a top quality multi terrain race but with less hills! The routes are signed and marshalled by Lingfield club volunteers.
All runners will receive a warm welcome back at Lingfield College where tea, coffee, and more importantly, a good selection of cakes, will be available to purchase.
After costs, all proceeds from the race and cake sales will go to charity.
