Course Details

Saltwell park was opened in 1876 to provide a haven of peace and tranquillity, and was originally called the People’s Park. There are two different Victorian landscapes to be found in the park. The first, in the centre of the park, is the private mansion of Saltwell Towers and landscaped gardens of William Wailes – built between 1850 and 1862. William Wailes (1808-1881) was one of the 19th century’s most noted stained glass designers. His work can be seen in churches throughout the country, including at St. Mary’s and St Cuthbert’s churches in Gateshead.

The attraction has recently been restored to the once beautiful and picturesque people’s park that it used to be. The restoration involved a staggering 30,000 new trees and shrubs, 100 new Victorian-style seats, a renovation of the Saltwell Towers, the maze- using 1,200 new trees and a new creation of 3,600 square meters of new lawn.

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 around. 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 to 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.
