Edinburgh Dog Jog

Did you know dogs can now fundraise for Poppyscotland? The Dog Jog is a unique 5k jogging event for you and your dog. Each event offers a relaxed and fun atmosphere where you can meet like-minded dog owners in your area. You even get a Doggy Bag  and a Dog Jog collar keyring medal! So if you fancy a run with your favourite four legged friend then sign up below!

The Dog Jog Edinburgh takes place in Holyrood Park and follows the path around Arthur’s Seat taking in extensive views across Edinburgh. It really is the perfect spot for running! The route starts and finishes on an open flat area of grass and from then onwards, the route remains on a tarmac path throughout, until reaching the finish area. There is a major hill to go up and down and wheelchair users may require assistance to climb and descend the hill which covers 4km of the route.

  • Date: Sunday 28th July 2019
  • Start time: 2pm
  • All ages and dogs welcome
  • Entry fee: £16.25
