GOING GREEN!

When you enter the Dash for Cash Event in 2021 you will not only be entering a running event but you will be contributing to the environment!

We are pleased to announce that Thunder Road Event Management will be partnering with the Leschenault Catchment Council and we will be donating one tree for every competitor that enters the event.

Whilst our race will be held in January 2021, competitors will be able to follow updates and progress on the tree planting project during the journey.  The tree planting will be held in approximately June 2021 and entrants will be invited to attend the tree planting if they wish.

Get on board and we will provide more detail as time progresses!🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳

INFO on DASH for CASH

The event is scheduled to take place Saturday, January 2nd, 2021

The event is a handicapped running race over an approximate 10km distance where runners are allocated their start time by the Appointed Handicapper. The race allows competitors of all running abilities to have the chance to win the race that has a substantial financial reward and should encourage a good spread of competitors from around WA.

The race will see competitors attempt to catch each other within the closing stages of the race making this exciting for spectators and competitors and providing something different from the standard running race over a 10km journey. The race will finish next to the Bunbury Saturday Markets in Queens Gardens.

2021 will also include a support race.  The support race will be a distance of approximately 5km, one lap of the Bunbury Inlet and can only be entered as a Male & Female Duo.  The accumulative time of the duos will determine the overall results.  The support event is capped at 40 duos.

The race will be timed and results posted online.

Runners will cross Koombana Drive (managed by Traffic Controllers) and head along the Inlet path. Following the Inlet path, runners make their way around the back of the Caravan Park before heading over the Koombana Bridge.
Runners then follow the path and turn just short of the Parade Road Boat Ramp and head into the finishing line situated on the grassed area of Queens Gardens next to the Bunbury Saturday Markets.
