Runners in Elvaston Castle Country Park at the Derby 10 Mile

Derby 10 Mile is dashing back to business

This year’s event includes a Road Race 10 Mile Championship.

Fast, flat and a strong likelihood of a PB sums up the course at the Derby 10 Mile which returns on Sunday 14 November 2021. This is an ideal introduction to the distance or form part of a runner’s preparation for an autumn half marathon.

The Derby 10 Mile is a popular race, mainly for the scenic route which goes through the grounds of Elvaston Castle Country Park and the lack of elevation, making it an attractive prospect for the PB-chaser. It is part of the Run Derby Race Series where participants are allocated points based upon their finishing position and these decide the final standings. The competitive ante is further upped by the incorporation of the Midlands Counties Athletic Association Road Race 10 Mile Championship. 

It takes place on Remembrance Sunday and there will be a two minute silence at 11am followed by the start of the race at 11.02am from Derby Arena in Pride Park. Runners leave the stadium and continue on roads around the Pride Park area then continue into the Country Park with its historical gardens and gothic revival castle before exiting there to follow a river path and onto the finish at the Arena. 

Annabel’s Angels is the official race charity which fundraises and supports patients and their families in Derby who are living with cancer.           

Finishers collect a technical t-shirt and water in the Race Village and photos from the event will be uploaded onto the Derby 10 Mile website afterwards. 

Race details and how to enter can be found at the Derby 10 Mile website. This event fills up quickly so sign up now to avoid missing out.
