The Bedgebury Autumn 10K & 5K Canicross Challenge routes

The course is two laps for the 10K and a single loop for the 5K of an undulating route around the trails and paths within Bedgebury Forest. Starting and finishing within the Pinetum, the route should be quiet with no vehicle traffic, although there will be other forest users and bicycles crossing the routes, so runners should be alert to other users.

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

Join us for another great event on the South East Canicross Calendar.

After another sellout last year, this picturesque 10K and 5K returns again in the autumn and takes place along the undulating forest paths and trails in and around Bedgebury National Forest.

The event is open to Canicross runners of all abilities, from novices to experienced athletes.

The race is organised in partnership with Fit Together Canicross, who run Canicross Classes Courses and Fun Runs in Kent. They will also be on hand at the event to help with any Canicross-related questions or advice, as well as having kit for sale on the day.

There will be medals and dog treats on offer to all finishers.

Entry fee includes vehicle admission charges.

Prizes in both races for 1st, 2nd, 3rd Male and Female.

Raceday Logistics

Let's Do This always recommend that you arrive at least 45 mins before your start time so that you have enough time to both register and prep for the race start.

Facilities:

Toilets
On Site Parking – vehicle admission charge included in entry fee
Baggage Drop Off

First Aid:

St John Ambulance or an alternative medical provider will be in attendance on the day and the course will be marshalled to provide assistance. There will also be a sweep runner following the race to ensure that nobody is left behind and that all runners are accounted for.

Results:

Your individual time and position will be recorded by our chip timing team. We will endeavour to display results as they come into the race centre, but please allow time for manual processing. Results will be uploaded to www.nice-work.org.uk as soon as possible after the race. All entrants that have supplied a valid and legible email address will receive a copy of the results as soon as possible after the race.

If you would like to volunteer to help at any of our events, there are a variety of roles available from marshalling to helping with event set-up. We offer our volunteers a free entry to a future race and, in some cases, expenses are available. If interested, please contact: [email protected]

  • 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.
