Dovedale Dash

THE  Peak District is the venue for the popular cross-country race, the Dovedale Dash.

Now in its 56th year, the event covers a four-and-three-quarter-mile course over field and dale, on rough paths and tracks. It features a crossing of the River Dove at the Stepping Stones beauty spot.

This year’s race take place on Sunday November 6 at 11am. Last year over 1,500 runners of all ages and capabilities competed.

There are trophies for winners in the open class, under-18s, under-14s, over-60s, women and locals.

This year, there will also be a separate race for under-10s, starting at 10am.

Entry is £5 on the day only, starting from 9am, and there is no charge for parking.

Full details are available at, or contact the  organisers on 01335 350 410 or 01335 350 239

And the good news – the toilets will still be open so there will be no Paula Radcliffe moments!
