Stanmer Park has limited parking within its boundaries. There are small car parks dotted throughout the park, as you drive through, and then up by the church adjacent to Stanmer Village. Please do not park on the road as this will block the 78 bus route and your car will be towed away. Please arrive early enough to find suitable parking and make your way to the registration desk.

Kit List

Walking gear and a dog lead!


Come and join in the fun!


We will be providing toilet facilities in the event village (nearest public toilets are located in Stanmer Village) and there will be dog waste bins provided. We ask that if your dog needs a pre-race ablution, please pick it up! We will have some spare poo bags available.

Unfortunately, we will not be providing changing facilities or bag storage so please bring as little as possible to the event, or bring a friend to watch who can look after your belongings and cheer you across the finish line.

Humans must be 16 or older to enter and dogs must be 12 months or older. We welcome children running or walking with their parents at no extra charge, but they must be accompanied and feel comfortable around other dogs.

    The Brighton K9 Challenge is an open and welcoming run (or walk) with dogs over a 5km trial route. The route is mostly covered through the woodlands of Stanmer Park, Brighton. There is a steep uphill early on which is about the only thing you might pull out as a negative. But organisers are aware, receptive to feedback and have changed the route from previous years to make the run more enjoyable. I only mark down the race because I wasn’t sure where to go at the start which won’t be an issue unless you are at the front. There was a line of cones to the tree line and then a right turn. After this point everything is easy as friendly encouraging marshals are abundant. Water stations for dogs were located at a few spots on the course but I don’t remember for humans. I think they must have been some and at the finish water bottles are thrusted at you - you are well looked after. There are a lot of goodies on offer but mostly for your dog. Organisers care so much and pay attention to safety. My dog overheated in the excitement and copious amounts of water came our way to keep him cool post-race. If you are competitive then there are prizes; you will be looking at sub 22-23 minutes as a guide (judging by times from 2017 & 2018). Several exhibitors on site and the atmosphere is great given there are just ~100 competitors. But remember you will need a dog to take part…
