Sport and Recreation
If taking part in sport is your thing, or even if you get exhausted watching, then Dalbeattie is the the place to be. Whether it be supporting the local football team Dalbeattie Star, tearing round the 7-Stanes on a mountain bike, or a leisurely walk round our extensive woodland or fabulous golf courses, there is plenty to do.
Dalbeattie is home to the popular and fast growing Hardrock Challenge event every October in Dalbeattie Forest which attracts competitors from far and wide, and the demands of the 7-Stanes Mountain Bike Trail draws people of all ages and abilities to pit their wits against the quirks of the Trail.
Dalbeattie Half Marathon and 10k Road Race took place on Sunday 17 June 2012. This was Dalbeattie Civic Daze's first venture into organising a sporting event and was extremely successful, despite heavy rains for days before. We hear this may now be an annual event, so check the website from time to time for 2013 details (not yet available).
