Darent Valley 10k

A 10k multi terrain road race which starts and finishes in the beautiful village of Eynsford and is mainly rural and undulating along country lanes, passing through picturesque Farningham Village and past notable local landmarks such as Eagle Heights, the Roman Villa and Lullingstone Castle and World Gardens before a long uphill section through Lullingstone Country Park. Here there are lovely views over the Lavender Fields before dropping down the hill towards the Visitors Centre and along a footpath parallel with the river before returning via The Roman Villa and back into Eynsford over the picturesque bridge at the ford.

2022 Race

This years' race was held on the 8th May 2022 in overcast but warm conditions and with 394 finishers. Judging from the feedback, the new course appears to be a hit with the athletes and marshals alike.

First home was Alex Reid from Tunbridge Wells Harriers in a time of 34.38, with Dartford Harriers' Hannah Roberts the first woman in 38.29 and coming in 12th overall. Well done to all who finished results are available here

The 2023 race is planned for 14th May 2023 - Hope to see you there!

Race information is available here please take the time to view the document.

Note we have plenty of parking available at Millfield, a 5 minute walk from the start - there are also a few car parks within the village but please do not park on the course, especially anywhere on the High Street - we had some issues last year which have meant we have had to implement parking restrictions in place in the village this year.
