Big Fun Run is a series of 5k untimed runs staged within scenic settings throughout the UK from July to October. Run for fitness, run for charity, run for fun…just run!
There’s no pressure, just some easy moves and lots of laughs. It’s all about getting involved, having fun and enjoying the whole experience of the day.
Central Park is Dartford’s newest park and combines purpose built recreation facilities within a country park atmosphere. The creation of Central Park was closely linked to the building of Golden Jubilee Way and the development of Eastbourne in the mid-1990s.
It is advised that you arrive 15 minutes before the start to take part in the Big Fun Run Warm up. The event is not timed so don’t worry about rushing round. There will be signage and marshals along the route to cheer you on and make sure no-one goes the wrong way. Once you come through the finish line you will be greeted by our friendly MC and finish team who will give you a bottle of water, an event goody bag and your well deserved medal. Remember your camera or phone and why not make your way to the Big Fun Run podium where you can take your picture along with anyone you’ve come with.
The course starts and finishes on an open flat area of grass and from then onwards, the route remains on the path throughout. Apart from approximately 800m of the Big Fun Run Dartford course which is on grass. Assistance may therefore be required for wheelchair users, especially in wet weather.
Well situated, the park is a 10 min walk from the city centre. There is also a small car park near the Cranford Road entrance at the southern end of the park (next to Fairfield Pool). Runners are encouraged to consider public transport or car sharing. For further information and travel / parking details for Central Park, please click here.

Bring your own camera/phone to take photos on the day. If you would like photographs of you on the course, please ask family or friends to take some for you. Why not pose infront of the Big Fun Run Pyramid. And remember to smile!
