Dog Jog Middlesbrough Route
Albert Park was donated to the people of Middlesbrough in 1868 by Henry Bolckow, one of the founders of the iron and steel industry on Teesside. The park covers an area of 30 hectares in the centre of Middlesbrough. The Park is Middlesbrough’s only Grade II listed Park in the English Heritage Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest. There are a wide range of facilities available within the Park including a Visitor’s Centre, Roller Skating Rink, Cafe, Swan hire on the Lake, Tennis Courts, Bowling Greens, Play Areas, Bandstand and much more. Some activities are seasonal so we recommend phoning in advance of your visit. Additional points of interest include the Bandstand, a statue of Brian Clough, the sundial, South African War Memorial and a canon from the Crimean War. Refreshments are available at the Visitor Centre (cold drinks and snacks). There is also a cafe attached to the Visitor Centre – this is externally run and provides hot and cold food and drinks.
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.
