At mile 10 the attractions of Reigate include the Pilgrim’s Brewery and the Castle Grounds and Keep of the old castle with Cave.
At Dorking, just North of the route at mile 14.5 is Box Hill, a high point on the North Downs Way and a feared climb in many endurance events. We should go up. Just to the North is Mickelham Village Hall that plays host to the infamous Copthorne Races.
Half a mile or so West of Box Hill is Denbies Wine Esatate, also a popular runner destination and a location used by popular run organiser Phoenix Running. Denbies is Britain’s largest vineyard and accounts for 10 per cent of English wine.
Dorking is also HQ to FMBE winner Fizz Experience.
The route for the day finishes at Guildford Cathedral.
