History of the walk 


Many years ago thousands of people made it their annual pilgrimage to travel to Epsom Downs for Derby Day. The journey which would have been planned weeks in advance has crossed the minds of many who now embark on a much simpler journey to the Investec Derby Festival.


The intrigue of the exhaustive journey of visitors in the 1700s sparked the beginning of the Derby Walk commencing two weeks before the Festival and raising money for charities. This year's walk marks the 11th anniversary.




the derby dash 


New for 2020, The Derby Dash is an 8 mile walk from Morden town centre, for those who don't want to follow the full Derby Walk distance to enjoy this unique experience. It follows the route of the Derby Walk, so everyone can walk in the footsteps of millions of race fans who have made their way to the historic Derby event.
