The December Daily Dash returns for 2019! An incredible challenge to walk, run or jog 5km/3 miles every day throughout December.

About the event

So, what is the Daily Dash?

The event was dreamt up by two of our amazing supporters, Jackie and Mark, and some of their friends in 2015 after Jackie lost both her parents to cancer in the space of 18 months.

The Dash raises money in support of our palliative, neurological and bereavement support, provided by the Sue Ryder care centres who cared for Jackie's dad in the last few months of his life.

Do I have to do it every day, even Christmas day?

Absolutely - the Christmas day run is one of the best as it gets you out of the house and active, and maybe even bumping in to some fellow Dashers.

But I've got this thing one day in December, can I still do it?

One of the defining aspects of the challenge is its daily nature at a time of year when lots is going on. We don't track or police its completion and leave it entirely up to you how you complete it and when.

We suggest that you try and do something every day that challenges you personally.

People find it hard to miss a day once they get on to a 'streak' but, of course, please do exercise common sense!
