The Bedgebury Autumn 10K & 5K Canicross Challenge routes

The route takes you through this scenic woodland, over exposed trunks, and flanked by towering trees.

This is a looped course, with 5KM athletes completing it once, and 10KM participants doing it twice.

Runners will set off in in groups of 10 - 20, every one minute.

All dogs must be kept on their lines and under control at all times, and you must clear up after your dog. If your dog is found to be off lead, you will risk disqualification

    Did the 5K in 2019

    I have done this twice this year and have loved everything about it - and my springer has too! Looking forward to next year.

    Did the 5K in 2019

    Unfortunately couldn't recommend this event. Wouldn't be doing this event again. Some of other runners were rude shouting to get out of there way. People with 2 dog had no control.
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    Really good run, just need more dog friendly events like this one.
    Dog loved it and enjoyed his doggy biscuit at the finishing line.
  • Did the 5K in 2018

    I wish I'd been told the correct start time in the most recent email I had from you. My dog was getting anxious with the extra hanging around. Others were worried they were missing the start too.
  • Did the 10K in 2018

    I really enjoyed the course. Such a beautiful place for a run.The only thing I missed was more basic etiquette from several runners. Informing when overtaking or thanking when helped.... Regardless the downs. I loved it and I hopefully come again!
  • Did the 5K in 2018

    I think I knew all that I needed to know. It was a great race and we really enjoyed it.
