Dartford Road Runners host a three-race 5K Summer Series in the picturesque Joydens Wood. The races are held on the last Wednesday of May, June and July. Each race is run over a different course, each of which take place on the trails within the woods. Races are open to runners of all abilities over the age of 11, and prizes are awarded for the first three runners in their age/gender categories.

There’s no need to enter in advance of these events. We’ll publish further details of how to take part in the 2019 series nearer the time.

These races cannot be held without the support of the Woodlands Trust who control the woods and to whom we give a donation from the revenue raised to help towards the continued upkeep of the woods.
