The Dog Jog series are unique 5k jogging events for you and your dog to get fit and have fun. Each event offers a relaxed and fun atmosphere with no times and no pressure. They are also a great opportunity to meet like-minded dog owners in your area. Plus what’s more, when you cross the finish line you’ll receive a fantastic Doggy Bag jam-packed with goodies for both you and your dog, as well as Dog Jog Collar Keyring medal! Dog Jog is all about getting involved, having fun and enjoying the great outdoors with your favourite four-legged friend!
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.
Mote Park is a beautiful 180 hectare, multi use public park in Maidstone, Kent. The park provides a picturesque setting in which runners will enjoy a fantastic route through woodland and around the lake. The route also has very close proximity to Maidstone Leisure Centre which has a great range of fitness facilities. The start/finish area will be indicated by the inflatable pyramid of positivity. Please note that the route may be subject to change. The course starts in the north of Mote Park, east of the lake and a short walk from the indoor bowls club. Please note that there is limited car parking at Mote Park and as a result, runners are advised to use town centre car parks or to use public transport to travel to the Dog Jog. For further information and travel/parking details click here.
There is a long section (approx 500m) towards the start of the Dog Jog Maidstone course which is on grass. Runners go up a gradual hill for approx 200m and then back down. A wheelchair possibly could go over the ground but it would be difficult in poor weather conditions. Assistance may therefore be required.
