Duver Dash

Duver Dash

Charity Fun Runs in support of The Sophie Rolf Trust - KissyPuppy and West Wight Sports & Commuity Centre 

Cancelled this year due to the ongoing impact of the Coronavirus, we are delighted the Duver Dash will be back in 2021 as part of the Festival of Running from 30th May to 6th June, with the Duver Dash event itself on Sunday 30th May (Bank holiday at the start of 1/2 term)

The Duver Dash is now part of the Isle of Wight Festival of Running, organised by West Wight Sports & Community Centre.  Funds raised will be split equally between these 2 Island charities.

The 5km course (over 16s) will be inland this year (due to the time of High Water), taking participants from the Duver, along St Helens Beach and up through Nodes Point Holiday Park to the hill and fields beyond, offering some spectacular views across the surrounding countryside and finishing along the Causeway path between the lagoons in the Harbour itself.   

The Junior 1km course (under 16s, min age 5) will once again be held on the Duver itself, with the option of a 2nd lap.

Course maps: will be available here in due course.
