Can I run with my dog?

Most of our 5k events do allow runners with dogs (including Cani Cross harnesses) although this may not be possible at some of our locations.
Please check on the course page of the event website first, or email the team to check - you can find their email address at the bottom of the event website.

Please note that we only allow 1 dog per runner and that the welfare of that animal remains your responsibility throughout your parkrun visit.

Please keep your dog under firm control at all times, either on a short lead or a harness with a short lead, and take extreme care to avoid tripping other runners. Further information and advice about running with a dog can be found on the Cani Cross UK & CaniCross Ireland websites.

Can we bring our dog to junior parkrun?

Dogs are not allowed to take part or accompany volunteers at junior parkrun.

You can spectate with your dog on a lead but please stand well back from the course.


Remember, you cannot register your dog, or any other animal, with us - parkrun is for humans only.
