The Dash! is an athletic event for primary school children that runs across two locations — Durham and Sedgefield.
Warrens Dash! 2019
The aim of the Dash! is to provide an inspirational athletics event for our school children within a unique County Durham setting, and at the same time promote sport and physical activity as a positive lifestyle choice for children and their families.
At a time when we use the Olympics and our Olympians as leading role models it is important that we provide and maintain an aspirational platform for individuals to show their talents as well as promote the role that schools and the School Sport Partnership play inspiring our next generation of leaders and citizens through school Sport and PE.
Ian Gardiner, Executive Manager of County Durham Sport says “The Dash! proves year after year that sport can and will continue to inspire young people and change lives.”
