Course Details

The Dog Jog Edinburgh route starts and finishes on an open flat area of grass and from then onwards, the route remains on a tarmac path throughout, until reaching the finish area. There is a major hill to go up an down and wheelchair users may require assistance to climb and descend the hill which covers 4km of the route.

The start/finish area is located on the playing fields to the rear of Holyrood Palace and only a short distance from the Scottish Parliament. This is on the north side of Holyrood Park of Queen’s Drive. The course takes advantage of the excellent tarred surface as it follows Queen’s Drive around Arthurs Seat. The route passes through the Salisbury Crags, the three lochs of Duddingston, Dunsapie and St Margaret’s and enjoys extensive views across Edinburgh. Please note that the route may be subject to change.

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.
