Beachside Dash

The Dash has something for everyone!

Get ready to hit the beach because the St.George Bank Beachside Dash will be back for the 11th time in 2018.

When: Sunday 9 September, 2018.

Where: Starting and finishing in Peter Depena Park, Sans Souci, the Dash also takes in the beautiful views of Dolls Point and Brighton.

Time: The Dash starts from 6.45am with registration open. Each Dash event starts at the following times:

10km Dash commences at 7.30am.
5km Dash commences at 9.00am.
2km Dash commences at 10.10am.

Distances: 10km, 5km & 2km. You can even run all three, if you wish! (but you’ll need to register three times).

Why? The Dash is a major fundraising event for the St George & Sutherland Medical Research Foundation (SSMRF).  Medical Research plays a vital role in the healthcare of our community and the benefits can be profound. Our aim is to enrich the healthcare of the community by supporting medical research at St George and Sutherland Hospitals. We know that hospitals with major research activity and achievements attract and retain the best staff. And because the research we fund is conducted in our local hospitals, results are translated to patient treatment, providing the most up-to-date care for you, your families and our local community #runforresearch

In 2018, 284 people in the Bayside, Georges River and Sutherland Shire LGA’s will be told they have bowel cancer.

Bowel cancer is the second most common cancer in Australia and it has the second highest death rate.

Researchers at St George Hospital are working on the microbiome and how the bugs in your gut contribute to the development of bowel cancer.

This is just one of our important research programs that really needs your support.

Who: The Dash truly is for participants of any age and any level of fitness. So, if you’ve always wanted to don a bib and enter a timed run, the Dash is a great place to start. Or, if you’re looking to set a personal best time, the flat course follows the footpath the whole way, so you can really clock some speed.

Tickets: Online entries will open in June.  Online entries will stay open until midnight Thursday 6th September, but the good news is you can also register on the day. Please note that we only accept cash on the day. Please make sure you allow yourself plenty of time to arrive and complete your form, receive your bib and get race ready.
10km Dash on the day registrations are open from 6.45am to 7.20am.
5km Dash on the day registrations are open from 7.20am to 8.50am.
2km Dash on the day registrations are open from at 8.50am to 10am.
