Dunstable Downs parkrun

Parkrun organises free, weekly, 5km timed runs at many venues around the world, organised by volunteers.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event

Parkrun is such a simple concept: turn up every Saturday and walk, jog or run 5k. These events are all about inclusiveness and wellbeing, with mixed abilities from beginners to Olympians!

This is a free event, but please register before your first run. Only ever register with parkrun once. Don't forget to bring a printed copy of your barcode.

The View Café will be open for post-run drinks and snacks.

Meeting point
Meet at The Chiltern Gateway Centre courtyard for a run briefing at 8.50am. The run starts promptly at 9am in front of the centre and finishes at the beacon.
What to bring and wear
Suitable running gear and trainers required. Don't forget water and, in the warmer months, sunscreen.
Don't forget to bring your printed barcode, without it you won't be given a time. Register before your first run at
