Our Biggest Fundraiser
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.
The 2020 race was unfortunately cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but we welcomed over 1,000 virtual runners to take part! Details regarding the 2021 event will be circulated in line with government restrictions.
On your maks, get set, go!
Race day is a whirlwind for everyone involved, whether you're taking on your first race, setting a new PB or volunteering to clear all the barriers away afterwards.
There are so many ways to support us on the day, as a runner who may want to raise additional funds in sponsorship, a business who want to take on our team challenge or taking to the streets to cheer on our runners!
We are still adjusting plans and responding to changing guidelines regarding the 2021 event and all updates will be communicated in due course. If you have any further questions please contact us using this form.
