The Dovedale Dash is a cross country race of 4.75 miles, usually run by over 1200 people of all abilities. The venue is the picturesque area around the village of Thorpe near Ashbourne and Dovedale in the south of the Derbyshire Peak District. The course is mainly along field paths and open ground in the valleys of the river Dove and Manifold. One of the excitements is the mass crossing of the River Dove at the well known stepping stones. Registration from 9:am but arrive in plenty of time to secure parking. Please car-share.
