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 are able to host our usual three 5km races. Dates for 2024 are;

Wednesday 29th May, Wednesday 26th June, and Wednesday 31st July.

The series is an ideal step up from parkrun and 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 opens on Thursday 28th March and is only available through this site.
