It is advised that you arrive 15 minutes before the start to take part in the Dog Jog Warm up. The event is not timed so don’t worry about rushing round. There will be signage and marshals along the route to cheer you on and make sure no-one goes the wrong way. Once you come through the finish line you will be greeted by our friendly MC and finish team who will give you a bottle of water, an event goody bag and your well deserved medal. Remember your camera or phone and why not make your way to the Dog Jog podium where you can take your picture along with anyone you’ve come with.
The route starts and finishes on grass and there are other grass sections on route. Although much of the Dog Jog Leeds route is on paths, it could prove difficult for wheelchair users, especially in wet weather and on some of the grass slopes.
