Dalby Forest parkrun

A group of runners enjoying an early morning jog along a forest road.The Dalby Forest parkrun is a free, fun event held every Saturday morning. Run a timed 5k course on a mixture of forest roads, gravel paths and wooden bridges in a beautiful forest setting.


The event is organised by parkrun volunteers and is free to participate, but please register before your first run and don't forget to bring a printed copy of your barcode with you to record your time. For further details and how to register please visit the  Dalby parkrun website.

You don't have to be fast and furious, come along and join in at your own pace, and don't forget the after race coffee at the Courtyard Cafe or the main Visitor Centre Cafe.

There is a discounted toll charge of £2 per vehicle for all parkrunners to use the forest until 10.30 a.m. just ask the race marshal for details.
