Alternatively, join the Virtual Double Dash Challenge and choose your own 5k route – we’ll still send you a Double Dash t-shirt and tether so you’ll get the full Double Dash experience just closer to home.
Double Dash was quite simply the best running event... amazing atmosphere that made me non-stop smile, and as a blind person for the first time ever, I felt equal to every other runner on the course. It's totally unique. I can't wait for the next one.

When you’re blind or partially sighted, safely going out for a run can be a real challenge. Most people overcome this barrier by running tethered at the wrist to a guide runner. It’s a simple and safe way to be able to get out and enjoy the highs that come from running. This is the inspiration behind Double Dash. We want to give everyone a chance to experience a race like no other; running 5k tethered to a friend. So, whether you want to take on the 5k as a fitness challenge with friends, or as a fun run with the family, Double Dash is open to all.
If you need any persuasion, think about this: every day 250 people in the UK start to lose their sight. Today, there are two million people in the UK living with sight loss. We’ve done a lot to break down barriers over the last 150 years, but when it comes to blind or partially sighted people getting a job or doing all the other stuff that most of us take for granted, there’s still a huge amount to do.
