Duver Dash


Duver Dash - Sunday 29th May 2022

  Charity Fun Runs in support of the Sophie Rolf Trust and West Wight Sports and Community Centre - part of the Isle of Wight Running Festival  


What a fabulous way to spend a Sunday morning!

Thank you so much to everyone who supported the Duver Dash charity event this morning.  Over 150 runners on the St Helens Duver - 106 completing the scenic 5km route taking in the Duver, St Helens Beach, Nodes Point Holiday Park (the hilly bit!) and footpaths and fields before heading down into St Helens Village and back towards the Harbour, across the Mill Wall and back onto the Duver to the finish. 

The Junior event was a 1km course on the Duver itself with a 2nd lap option - runners ranged in age from 5 to 14 and everything in-between.   There were some very determined youngsters going for gold, and a number of families with Mum, Dad, and children all taking part in the event over the 2 runs!

All runners received a rather special Duver Dash medal made from wood sourced sustainably on the Island.

Duver Dash is the opening event of the Isle of Wight Festival of Running, organised by the West Wight Sports & Community Centre, with events continuing throughout the week and culminating on 5th June with the Freshwater 5, Needles Half-Marathon and a Junior Fun Run.

Duver Dash fundraising supports the Harbour’s nominated charity, the Sophie Rolf Trust - KissyPuppy. and the West Wight Sports & Community Centre Trust.

Without a small but significant army of volunteers and Marshals this event simply could not happen.  Co-ordinated by the Harbour’s Operations and Safety Manager, Gordon Wight with his Course Director’s (and Commentator’s) hat on, they did a fantastic job - enormous thanks to all concerned.
