Event Description

Darley Dash 


Join us for a unique opportunity to compete in our chip timed measured and certified 5k and 3k running races at Ashbourne's well known Darley Moor Racetrack. 

Open to all runners from internationals to club to road to social to park, this is your chance to prove what you can do. With a flattish and quick course, this is the perfect race to smash your P.B. and boost your official Power of 10 ranking. There will be a wide start across the width of the tarmacked racing circuit with each kilometre marked out around the circuit to guide you in for your well-earned chequered flag finish.

Weighted down club gazebos are welcome, we're aiming for a Cross Country/Fell Race series atmosphere with plenty of space to set up camp and catch up with other clubs.

In line with our sustainability goals we can offer an optional medal at a cost of £3.50 for anybody who wants one, make sure tick the option when you enter. We can also offer (basic) FREE CAMPING at the racetrack from 4 p.m. the night before your race, for competitors and immediate family (parents/children)

It's a bank holiday weekend so why not stay over and take advantage of being on the edge of the Peak District without having to pay sky high camping fees!
