Danny’s Dash – 11 October 2015

I was the only Malvern Jogger at Danny’s Dash today starting at Coney Green Farm, Stourport on Severn.  Participation in this race has been growing year on year since it first began in 2012 in memory of Danny Horton who died in 2010 at the age of 36 from a brain tumour.  The event is organiased by Danny’s family and all proceeds are donated to Brain Tumour Research and Help for Heroes.

This was a challenging 7.2 mile multi-terrain loop with at least 4 very steep hills taking in forest tracks and paths and finishing with stunning views over the Severn Valley and Stourport.  The reward for all finishers was a large ‘Desperate Dan’ hand crafted pie and a bottle of English Ale, Cider or Lager.

I finished in a time of 1:12:46, 9 minutes faster than in 2012. Julie
