The Ranelagh Harriers Richmond 10k began life in 1981 as the Dysart Dash. It was a one off event on a course around Ham Common and formed part of the club’s centenary celebrations.

The Dysart Dash name was retained for an annual 10k which began ten years later. The original course was half road and half on the Thames towpath, starting in Meadlands Drive and finishing in Riverside Drive. In 2010 came a new name and a new course. The Ranelagh Harriers Richmond 10k now begins and ends in Riverside Drive and although close to the river it offers a better running surface.
