Dover Running Series | 5K

Dover Running Series has been created as an exciting opportunity to showcase the modernisation of the centuries-old Citadel; the UK's largest Napoleonic fortress, set in the Historic beauty of Dover.

  • Sun 1 Oct 2023
The Citadel, Dover




Age 16 & over

  • 5 km multi terrain running


The three routes take you on a multi-terrain journey through the very best of Dover’s Historical landmarks, as well as its breathtaking coastline. The Citadel has reinvented itself over recent years, now standing evermore proudly at the highest point of Dover, it's home to a cultural variety of arts and innovation, and it's fast becoming a beacon for the regeneration of the seaside town. The Citadel's vast revetment was once a jogging track for the prisoners incarcerated within the fortress, but now reimagines itself as an integral part of this series of sporting events. You can choose to participate in a singular event or challenge yourself to complete the whole series. The further you progress through the series, the more you will see what Dover and its surrounding area have to offer you. This really is a unique opportunity to experience the Citadel on its first public sports event weekend. Book now to avoid disappointment!!!

This event is part of Dover Running Series.
