Many thanks for all runners and supporters who braved the elements and supported the 2018 Dunecht Dash.


We had a great time, and I hope you did as well.


I should apologies to all 5km runners who braved the un-covered cattle grids. This was an oversight on our part (they were all ready to be fitted prior to the race, but in all the fun we forgot!)

We look forward to seeing you next year. 

Please note, the 5km sold out within 48hrs. Keep checking the DD Facebook page from January 2019

Note for Corporate Sponsors

We recognise that Corporate sponsors are important to the success of our event and believe that the Dunecht Dash ticks many of the relevant boxes concerning CSR objectives:

Frequently asked questions

This is where we hope that we can answer most of the simple questions you may have.

Q: Where is the event held?

A: Both runs are within the beautiful grounds of Dunecht House on mainly private tarmac roads. Car parking and registration is at Dunecht House, near Dunecht Village and will be clearly signposted on the day.  Please follow signs from the A944 Aberdeen-Alford road in Dunecht Village.  

Q: What time do I have to be there?

A: Registration at Dunecht House 10-11.30am. The 2km fun run starts at 11.30am and the 5km race starts at 12.15pm. Please make sure you register early as you may have a walk to the registration. A site and course map will follow.

Q: Are there any prizes?

A: Yes! For the  2K we have prizes for the 1st, 2nd, 3rd  Male and Female   U16, U12, U10, U8, U6. For the 5km we have prizes for the 1st SF U35,  VF U45, SVet F45+, SM U40, VM U50, SVM  50+.

Q: Can I bring my dog?

A: Unfortunately we had a few irresponsible dog owners over the last few years and dogs are no longer permitted within the estate on the day of the race. A case of a few spoiling it for the many.

Q: Course schematics - What route will I be running?

A: Schematics of the routes can be found here: 2km route / 5km route
