About The Event
The Durham Dash is an urban athletics event giving primary school children the opportunity to compete within the historic city centre.
Pupils will compete in either an urban road race or field events, they cannot compete in both. The 600m road race will start [TBC]. The field events will be a carousel of activities on [TBC], with each child trying all disciplines (Standing Long Jump, Speed Bounce, Shot Putt & Chest Push).
Race Teams will consist of 8 pupils, 1 child in each of the following categories; Y3 girls, Y3 boys, Y4 girls, Y4 boys, Y5 girls, Y5 boys, Y6 girls, Y6 boys.
Field Event Teams will consist of 8 pupils, 1 child in each of the following categories; Y3 girls, Y3 boys, Y4 girls, Y4 boys, Y5 girls, Y5 boys, Y6 girls, Y6 boys.
Event t-shirts for the young athletes will be distributed to each school; they are colour coordinated for each age group to help the staff and volunteers determine the correct race entrants.
Each school will need one teacher/responsible adult to register the team and ensure that they all leave the event safely. It is advisable for each school to bring at least 2 responsible adults; one to be based at the start one at the finish line.
Due to expected interest, and our wish for as many schools to enjoy the Dash! this year we will in the first instance allow entries of up to 2 race teams and 2 field teams per school.
Schools who wish to enter additional teams will be able to register their interest for one or more track/field event
Please indicate if you would like to bring extra teams when you sign up.
