Our Biggest Fundraiser

Important Update: 16th March 2021

In line with the Government’s proposed ‘roadmap’ out of lockdown, we are delighted that the prospect of the hosting the Derby 10K in October 2021 is looking much more likely.

While we are aware that the dates on social contact could be revised, we are confident that the relaxation of rules and the introduction of further health and safety measures from our side will mean that the event can take place this Autumn.

The event will then revert to its usual Springtime date for 2022.

As we work directly with Derby County Football Club to stage the event, an exact date cannot be confirmed until fixtures are announced for the 2021/22. This is usually in the last week of June, when we hope to be able to communicate a definite date.

For now, we ask all deferred and prospective runners to hold the 17th and 31st October in their diaries, in the hope that the race will take place on one of those dates.

We thank all runners for your continued support as we continue to navigate through changing rules and regulations in order to deliver the city’s biggest race, which has brought Derby together for the last two decades and raises a crucial amount of funding for our vital projects.

We are hopeful, and excited, to see you in October.

Race Day

The Derby 10K is the biggest race in Derby's calendar. Organised by us at the Derby County Community Trust, it raises thousands of pounds for our own projects and other local charities every year.

The long-established route starts and finishes at the home of the Rams, Pride Park Stadium, looping through the city centre and its landmarks including Derby Cathedral, Guildhall and right past our headline sponsors' doorstep (hi HUUB!)

Every year around 5,000 runners join us to don their running trainers and tread the Sunday morning streets of Derby. Since its inception in 2002 the race has cemented a firm place in runners' hearts and we welcome runners of all abilities.

Our current course record holders are Ben Connor who completed the race in 28:59 in 2016, and Kate Avery who set the new feamle record of 34:38 in 2018.

We also welcome wheelchair entrants and have a current course record set by Paralympic athlete Phil Hogg of 27:33. To enter as a wheelchair athlete, please contact us directly.

The race wouldn't be possible without the support of sponsors and local partners too. We'd like to extend a huge thank you to all of those who make the event possible, and in turn support the generation of funds for some of our most needed projects.
