About us


This is a 10km run on mixed terrain through the villages and lanes around the village of Orston in Nottinghamshire. In 2018 this event will take place for the 4th time. The previous runs have been in beautiful spring sunshine with a great atmosphere amongst the competitors and volunteers. This year there will be medals for all runners and prizes for the first male and female runners in both events. We have also gained a reputation for serving up delicious cake free to all runners after the event!

We are in the process of affiliating to runbritain (as we have been in previous years) and will have a race adjudicator present on race day. Please note that the total distance of this run is slightly more than 10km but as it is mixed terrain it is stilled classed as a 10km run under runbritain guidelines.

A really big thank you to all that took part in the Orston Spring Dash 2018. To see the race results click on the button below
