We’ve very excited to be ‘bringing’ you the second run in our trilogy and at a brand NEW route on the wonderful Denbies Wine Estate and this time the medal is presented in a ‘precious’ shiny GOLD!
This is a multi-distance event – from 5km to 10k, half to marathon to ultra, you can complete as many, or as few, laps as you like of a 5.3km, 3.28 mile, looped course around the beautiful Denbies Wine Estates within the overall 6 hour time limit.
We welcome all abilities of runner – complete one loop and you’re both a finisher and a winner in our eyes, or keep going and see how far you can get in the full 6 hour time limit and everyone gets the fabulous bespoke finishers’ medal.
Off road trail, through the wine estate with the odd hill thrown in!

Denbies Halloween Run 10km & 2km
For the second year, 2:09 Events is celebrating Halloween on Sunday October 28th with a terrifying 10K hosted by Denbies Vineyard near Dorking in Surrey. We have a dastardly route waiting for you that undulates over paved tracks and off-road trails and meanders in and out of the vineyards. There will be carved pumpkins to show you the way to the haunted woods where we have a few surprises in store for you. There’ll be ghosts and ghouls to show you the way and a few zombies and vampires to quicken your pace back to the finish where there’ll be lots of Halloween treats waiting. Dressing up is a big part of the experience and we’ll have face painters on hand to fine-tune your costume with are prizes for the best outfits on display. For those who aren’t quite ready for 10K there is a family-friendly, scary sprint over a shorter 2K course.
