The 7th edition of this friendly fundraising event took place on 28th August 2023 (BH Monday)
Thank you to all 66 junior & 161 senior runners who took part in the 2023 fundraising event.
A BIG thank you also to our 'racemaker' volunteers - we couldn't hold the event without you.
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) or talk to Dean at The George Inn if you would like to help.
