Dash for the Splash Sunday 15th August – OM Runners sought

OMs runners have been invited to enter a very special running of Thames Hare and Hounds famous www.dashforthesplash.com 10k on 15 August.   It’s part of a big weekend of sport being organised by the Wimbledon and Putney Commons to celebrate 150 years since their formation and promises to be a really great weekend for all.

‘Entries are now open at www.dashforthesplash.com and it would be lovely to see many of you and your teams for one of the first races on The Common after the pandemic.

For those of you new to the Dash it’s one of our favourites – getting to all corners of The Common, a very special trip through the Beverley Brook Watersplash and a lovely finishers’ momento for all – toffee puddings have been our prize of choice for the past few years.

It all promises to be a great day, a wonderful celebration of The Common, and we promise your runners will be smiling all afternoon. Please do share this message with them and hope to see you there.’

Club Chair Karen Hill (B2/MM 1988-90) and Treasurer James Spender (EL/C2 1987-92) have signed up and would like to invite any OMs taking part to drink after the race – let us know if you are taking part and Karen and James look forward to seeing you at the starting line.
