Get ready to lace up those trainers and unleash your inner elf at our most magical event of the season – Elf Dash!  

Join us at Branksome Dene Community Rooms on 2 December at 11am for some jolly good fun.  

🏃‍♂️ Lace up those trainers and prepare to dash along the beautiful Branksome Seafront in a 2km dash. 

🎁 But that's not all! The Elf Dash is more than just a race – it's a celebration of Christmas. After crossing the finish line, indulge in a complimentary gourmet burger and hot drink provided by our friends at Rapid Relief. And guess what? You'll receive an iconic Elf hat to wear as you join in the fun and fabulous festivities! 

🎅✨ Get ready for a visit from Santa himself, spreading joy and laughter to everybody who gets involved.  

For this fundraising event, we are asking participants to raise £75 in sponsorship which goes towards helping our children's wards including; Maternity, NICU, Gully’s Place, Paediatric, Children's Development Centre, CDC Music Therapy, Diabetic Children Of Dorset, and the Children's Eye Unit.

Not only is this event popular and fun, every penny raised will make a real difference.
