Something For Everyone!
Dash and Splash is a 5-kilometre dash along the length of Sandown Bay on the Isle of Wight.
This beautiful area has the largest bay on the island which, at low tide, offers a unique run along the hard sand. There are 43 groynes in total to negotiate along the 5-kilometre run, most of which are a straight run through large gaps. The remaining 14 will be splashed around, which at low tide will be mostly ankle deep. Two groynes could be waist deep, these will have marshals in the water.
