Donut Dash – In aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care

Categories: ,

Fundraisers with a sweet tooth are being urged to lace up their trainers and take part in a new race in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care.

Whether you’re a keen runner, donut connoisseur or just want to try something fun for charity, the Donut Dash is an event for everyone.

Part of the Suffolk Trail Festival, it’s up to you whether you choose to walk or run the one-mile course, but whatever you decide waiting for you at the end will be a delicious donut (and a medal) – taking part never tasted so sweet.

Adults can sign up for £10 with entries for under 16s priced at £5.

An adult, who must also be registered to take part in the challenge, must accompany all children under the age of eight. Children aged nine to 16 must have an adult present at the event.

The race takes place on Sunday 4th July 2021, starting at 1.15 pm.
