The 5th edition of this friendly fundraising event will take place on 30th August 2021 (Bank Holiday Monday)

See 2021 event details below including links to on-line entry and route maps.

Due to the pandemic, we will be making a few small changes this year to help keep everyone safe.

On-line entry via Racebest is now open. 

Interested in being a Dash 'Racemaker'?

If you are not a runner but would like to be involved, we need lots of Dash 'Racemaker' volunteers to help with various tasks on race day (eg. registration, marshalling, timekeeping) as well as course preparation and baking flapjack & cakes ahead of race day. Donations of prizes (such as garden produce, bottles of wine/beer, chocolates and cakes) would also be very welcome.

Please contact Anne Middleton ( or talk to Dean at The George Inn if you would like to help.
