The Dinosaur 10k returns for a 37th time in 2018 and is named in memory of one of the Deal Tri club's founders, Roger Francis-Darby, who during his competitive history referred to himself as an Old Dinosaur. The race donates a large percentage of profits from the race to the Canterbury Hospital Skin and Dermatology Department and Skin Cancer UK each year.
Using an accurately measured course, the undulating route uses the roads and promenade surrounding Walmer. With the final 4k along the flat seafront, with the right weather conditions, a fast time is definitely on the cards.
Prizes are awarded for leading runners and vets categories and team prizes for males (4 to score) and Females (3 to score). Prizes also on offer for first married couple and oldest finisher.
The 2018 event is held as part of the Kent Grand Prix.

The Course This accurately-measured course is undulating with a flat 4k finish along the sea front; all the road sections are quiet but not closed to traffic. There will be kilometre markers along the route and it will be fully marshalled; the course includes a short ‘dog leg’ after Kingsdown Hill. Lead cyclists will precede the first runner and follow the last runner. Please be aware of any cyclists using the cycle path, which runs parallel to the race route for part of the course.
First Aid St John Ambulance or an alternative medical provider 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.
Your individual time and position will be recorded by your electronic chip. We will endeavour to display results as they come into the race centre. Results will be uploaded to www.nice-work.org.uk as soon as possible after the race. All entrants that have supplied a valid and legible email address will receive a copy of the results as soon as possible after the race.
The Race Headquarters will be at Walmer Sea Scout Hut. The start/finish area will be on the promenade immediately outside the HQ and signs will be clearly posted to direct you. There is limited car parking available on the streets surrounding the race HQ but there are car parks in Deal, and limited additional parking may be provided at Deal Castle.
The closest railway station is Deal and it's roughly half a mile from the station to the race HQ.
