Welcome to the Datchet Dashers!

We are a running club based in Windsor (home of the Castle), close to London. As a club, we organise both The Dash in the Dark (a 10k night time trail race held in Black Park) and the Dashers' Relays (a 10k 2 person team relay race held in Home Park).

We are primarily a road-running club, but venture into the country in the winter.

Members race over most distances, from 5km all the way up to ultra-distance races such as the Comrades Marathon and anything in between.


Covid-19 response

We are closely following updates from the government and England Athletics and are pleased to be able to train together again.


In order to comply with Covid-19 guidance, all runners (existing and new) attending club-nights must register their participation each week they attend. The clubhouse (including the bathroom) is closed until further notice, so please join the session ready to run and maintain social distance at all times. Please also ensure you have read and understood the committee's Covid-19 training notice and risk assessment prior to training.

Note on start-points and times... Because the clubhouse is still closed, we are asking that you be at the relevant training venue on Tuesday nights ready to start by 7:30 (for start points, visit the Tuesday venues map). The start for Thursday longer-runs remains at 7:10 from near the clubhouse (Thursday routes can be accessed from here).

Contact the captains if you're new and need advice (mens.captain@datchetdashers.com & ladies.captain@datchetdashers.com).
