The GREAT NORTH RUN ballot is now open! You can register a place in the general ballot on line and if you are successful in obtaining a place you can then fundraise for DASH as a part of a DASH team. If you do secure a place get in touch and we will help you with your fund raising. Quick, the general entry ballot will close at midday on Monday 5 February!

Whether you are a keen, regular runner or you just fancy getting into running for the first time, we would love to hear from you. DASH runners is a new group of people who are prepared to run, improve their health and fitness and raise sponsorship money for DASH at the same time.

You can choose your event and run as an individual or you can be a part of a team, the choice is yours and there are any number of events in the north east that you can enter including the internationally renowned Great North Run from Newcastle to South Shields which is on 9th September 2018.

There are other newer events such as the Durham City 10k which you could enter if a half Marathon seems a bit too far!

So far we have two group members in DASH runners but we’re hoping to recruit a few more so if you are keen to get fit, have fun and help raise funds for DASH please get in touch for more information about events and training; [email protected]
