DASH 2024

June 12 @ 4:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Get ready to DASH!

12 June 2024 @ Beamish Museum

The DASH! is an inspirational athletics event for primary and secondary school children.  Our annual event promotes sport and physical activity as a positive lifestyle choice for children and their families, and is recognised as one of the best young people’s sporting events in the North East of England.

On the registration you will have the option to enter maximum of two teams per school for the road races & maximum of two team for the field events. (there will also be an option to select to bring extra road race teams should there be spaces available)

Teams will consist of 1 Girl & 1 Boy from:

Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6

Road Races: 600m approx. race from Beamish events field via the fairground, to the old town cobbles and finish back on the events field (Start and finish in the same location)

Field Events: Chest Push, Speed Bounce, Long Jump, and High Stepper

Spaces will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.  This is just the initial sign up, we will send you a link to submit your team names etc closer to the time.

Registration for this event will close 26th April 2024 @ 12.00pm

Please Note: with regards to entries and t-shirts costs. Same a last year with running costs being very tight, if you enter the dash and fully pull out after the 10th May we will have to pass this cost for the t-shirts onto the school.  We will not pass on the cost for individual drop outs just if your whole school pulls out.

Our backup date is the Wednesday 19th June.  Please keep note of this date, if we do need to cancel for any reason and reschedule its a lot easier if you already have this date in your diary.

Spectators (over 16 years) entry fee will be £3 per person via wristbands
