Get moving with the 5.3km Dingo Dash 


The Dingo Dash is the shortest running event of the Dubbo Stampede. The 5km track is a great option for those who want to walk around the zoo with family and enjoy the sights and sounds of animals from around the world.

The Dingo Dash starts at 7.30am and finishes at 9.00am (1.5 hours).

If you’re a newbie runner, then the Dingo Dash is a great starting point in building your running experience. We'd love to have you on board. Why not take a look at John Robins' blog articles for his Couch to 5km training program to get you started? 

We also have two different training plans to help you on your way - one for walkers looking to run and one for more experienced runners looking to set a new PB!

Your registration includes entry to Taronga Western Plains Zoo, your finishers' medal and water bottle.

To be considered for age group placegetter trophies, competitors must enter as an individual and not in a team in the 5.5km Dingo Dash.

Children under four get free entry into the zoo, so littlies don't need to be registered in the dingo dash to participate. If you want a medal and racing bib for your under four year old however, they will need to be a registered participant.
