Directions / Parking

There is a small car park on Cranford Road where there are usually spaces. The time limit is two hours. Otherwise use neighbouring streets but several of these places are reserved for residents only.


60 minute Score course
Most controls in the urban area are postboxes but some are on footpaths or at road junctions.
This course crosses busy roads hence the area outside the park must not be attempted by anyone under the age of 16, even if they would be accompanied by an adult.
There is a penalty of 10 points for each minute or part of a minute late back.

There are a lot of roadworks in central Dartford. If heading south towards the park from control 17, keep left when the pavement splits and take extra care crossing the central ring road at this point.

The map contains the control descriptions.
The course is 2.6km. Two fences are not marked on the map but are obvious when there.

Update - 1 November 2020. The scaffolding surrounding major works in the park has now been extended making control 6 inaccessible. A new MapRun file has been created in the Kent/Dartford folder entitled "Central Park excluding 6". Please download and use this version until further notice.
