The Dinosaur 10K returns for the thirty-seventh time to the Kent running calendar in 2018. Named in memory of one of the 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 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.
