Description

RunDitcham Returns! Bigger and better than before - join us for a fabulous multi terrain 5K or 10K run across spectacular countryside, starting from our beautiful School high on the South Downs near to Petersfield, Hampshire. The 5K race is open to 12's and over, the 10K race for 16's and over. All children must be accompanied by a responsible adult. A tailrunner will be deployed.

The course is BEAUTIFUL with stunning views of the South Downs to the Solent. The 5K is a gentle run with a short hill section through gorgeous woodland on a designated long-distance trail path. The 10K follows the 5K route initially then heads down towards the south and circles back to the School with a challenging ascent (this can be walked and you will be encouraged all the way by the marshalls!) and you can ring the Ditcham School Bell to celebrate when you reach the top!! All participants will end the race back on the school track to the cheers and encouragement of the spectators and "The Ditcham Dragon!!".

Alongside will be a special event for the youngsters - the Ditcham Dragonflies Dash, a fun event for the younger folks. The exact length of the Dash will be determined nearer the event date, dependant on the mix of entrants' ages but will be no more than 400m (1 circuit of our fabulous running track). Parents, Grandparents or siblings can accompany and help the very smaller dashers if need be.

Registration starts from 8am and the runs will start at 10am. Book soon as the places are bound to fill quickly! Fabulously funky medals for all finishers of the 5K and 10K races and goody bag too. The first 3 ladies and gents in the 5K and 10K races will receive a trophy. Our event will support Cystic Fibrosis with a minimum of 50% of proceeds donated to the charity in memory of a local resident and runner and one of our School Alumni.

Free cup of tea/coffee and a tasty muffin/cake for finishers. A free drop-in creche will be available at our onsite "Dragonflies Nursery" for the duration of the event (note there is limited availability and so pre-booking is essential).

NB: Ditcham Park is accessed by two narrow country lanes which lead to our single carriageway North and South Drives (20mph on the drives maximum please). There is parking on site, HOWEVER, we encourage all participants to car share where possible. A small charge/donation to the charities will be requested to those parking on site. Please note that full directions will be provided to entrants approximately 10 days before the event.

Please note the School is in a rural area and we ask you to access and leave the site quietly and with thought for our local neighbours/residents/livestock.

Refreshments will be available throughout the event, run by our school PTA "The Friends of Ditcham Park School". First Aiders will be provided throughout the event, and there is a dedicated first aid room.

If you have any questions in regard to our event or require directions please contact the organiser via email bursar@ditchampark.com
