Joydens Wood 5k Summer Series

Three 5km races in the beautiful Joydens Wood on the last Wednesday of the summer months. A fantastic way to enjoy the outdoors actively!

The Dartford Road Runners Summer Series returns for 2024.

With the kind permission of The Woodlands Trust, we will be hosting our usual three 5km races.

Dates for 2024 are; Wednesday 29th May, Wednesday 26th June, and Wednesday 31st July.

The races start at 7:15pm. Please allow time to walk/run to the start which is in the picnic area towards the middle of the woods.

Prices In Advance: £7 per race or £18 for the 3 race series. On the night: £10 per race or £20 for the 3 race series (strictly cash only).

The summer series is an ideal step up from parkrun; entering all three races will give you a varied and fun way to see these beautiful woods whilst getting some really good exercise.

Parking is very limited, and we ask that runners car-share where possible, and park considerately in the local neighbourhood, being mindful of our neighbours. We strongly recommend footwear suitable for woodland running.

Entry for our 2024 series are now OPEN:
