The Deal Dinosaur 10k

Junior 1500m Start - 9.00 am 
Main Race Start line opens - 9.30 am

Main Race Start line closes - 10.00 am

After a covid-enforced absence last year, the Deal Dinosaur 10k returns in 2021 to its traditional July date as part of the Deal Regatta Association Carnival. The race is named in memory of one of the Deal Tri club's founders, Roger Francis-Darby, who during his competitive history often referred to himself as an Old Dinosaur!

The race features a sea front start and finish and the course follows an undulating route in and around the seaside town. This is a great race for those new to 10k races as well as those looking to post a good time. Profits from the race are donated to skin cancer charities.


Medals are available to all finishers – plus there are cash prizes and trophies to leading runners plus prizes for Age Group winners, oldest finisher, the first married couple and team prizes for clubs.

The Course
The race is a precisely measured circuit, staged utilising the seafront promenade and a short section of the unmade surface at Wellington Parade and Boundary Road, Kingsdown. The route is an out and back figure of eight course. There will be a water station at approximately 2 miles and and at the finish.


First Aid
St John Ambulance will be in attendance on the day and the course will be marshalled to provide assistance. There will also be a sweep marshal following the race to ensure that nobody is left behind and that all runners are accounted for.
