We are delighted to announce that our brand new event - 'The 5K Twilight Shift' will take place on Saturday 24th September 2022.

Will you take on the challenge and raise vital funds for our life-saving charity?

Taking place at Henstridge Airfield, this event will involve people running, jogging, or walking 5K around the airfield, which is the home of the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance team. 

In what is expected to be a truly memorable afternoon, the event will begin at 5.00pm; this is significant as it is the time when the crew of Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance begin the twilight shift and carry on their life-saving work into the night.

Supporters can enter the 5K Twilight Shift as an individual, as a family, or a group. You can take part as a serious runner or simply use it to have fun and exercise on what will hopefully be a beautiful late afternoon in September.

Participants could even wear fancy dress, or for the more experienced 5K challengers, carry extra weight, just like the air ambulance team need to do, when they are attending an incident. Businesses or groups might like to use the 5K Twilight Shift as an opportunity for team building, or in house competitions with friends and colleagues; it really is an event that is open to all.  

As this is a charity-run fundraising event, we are encouraging all participants to raise a minimum of £25 through sponsorship.
