Park Run

PHOENIX Running Denbies 10 (Note change of date)

Saturday 28 March 2020 POSTPONED DATE TBC

Phoenix Running are delighted to be putting on their first ever ‘Denbies 10’ – a picturesque 10 mile run around the beautiful Denbies Wine Estate and surrounding Surrey Hills and absolutely ideal timing for those wanting to put in a pre-London Marathon training run.

Denbies also hosts parkrun, so you could come and run a parkrun first and then join us for your second run of the day.

And, as you’d expect from Phoenix Running, the medal for this isn’t just your average 10 mile finisher’s medal either. This is a heavyweight, freestanding, 12mm thick medal presented in a high polished black nickel finish.

This is a 10 mile fixed distance event – there is also a 20 mile option. We welcome absolutely all abilities of runner – if you run with us you’re both a finisher and a winner in our eyes and everyone gets the fabulous bespoke finishers’ medal.

Places will be strictly limited so don’t leave it too late to enter.

Off road trail, through the wine estate with the odd hill thrown in – undulating and hilly.

There is NO ‘on the day entry’.

Denbies 10 – Sat 28/03/20 – 10 Mile run, 10.30am – https://www.phoenixrunning.co.uk/events/denbies-10

Denbies 20 – Sat 28/03/20 – 20 Mile run, 10.30am – https://www.phoenixrunning.co.uk/events/denbies-20


Hard CHEESE & WHINE-athon(Note change of date)

Sunday 26 April 2020 – 8 hour timed event, 09.30am POSTPONED TO SUNDAY 25 AUGUST 2021

Didn’t get into the 2020 London Marathon – well hard CHEESE!.
Fancy having a good old ‘WHINE’ about how many times you’ve been rejected!

Then come and join us for a ‘NOT the London Marathon’ run at the beautiful Denbies Wine Estate – it just couldn’t be any more perfect!

This ‘rejects’ run will be an 8 hour timed event where entrants complete as many or as few loops of a 3.28 mile route as they like around the vineyard. There will, of course, be a marathon and half marathon option. Complete one lap and you’re both a finisher and a winner in our eyes and you’ll receive an epic bespoke medal.

And yes, of course, there’ll be cheese and wine at the already epic aid station!

Our ballot has a 100% success rate – we won’t reject you!



VE Day – 75th Anniversary Run  (Note change of date)

We’ve gone all out on the ‘bling’ to parachute in one of our finest, most intricate, most spectacular medal creations ever!

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 Estate within the overall 7 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 7 hour time limit and everyone gets the fabulous bespoke finishers’ medal.  Places will be strictly limited so don’t leave it too late to enter.

Denbies Halloween Run 10km & 2km   October, 2020

2:09 Events are celebrating Halloween on Sunday 27th October 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.

Denbies 5km Santa Fun Run

The 5km Santa Run follows the traditional formula: hundreds of red-suited, bearded Santa’s run, jog or walk around a beautiful, traffic-free course against a backdrop of festive tunes and entertainment. The run is untimed and at the finish there’ll be a glass of mulled wine, a minced pie and a fabulous medal waiting for you. There’s free parking, a secure bag store and there’ll be plenty of festive entertainment on site for any non-running members of the family you want to bring along.

The entry fee is £25, which includes your free Santa Suit and its £15 for children under 15, who can have a soft drink rather than the mulled wine at the finish.

Entry Fee: Adults £25 / Children under 15 £15
