We will once again be holding our 5K Twilight Shift on Saturday 6th July 2024 and there are only 500 places available for those who wish to take part.

For the third year running, the event will take place at Henstridge Airfield on the Dorset/Somerset border; the operational base for our life-saving critical care team.

The 5K Twilight Shift 2023 Start

Participants can run, jog, or walk the 5K and enter 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 July. 

Businesses or groups might like to use the event as an opportunity for team building, or in-house competitions with friends and colleagues; it really is an event that is open to all. 

You can wear fancy dress for a bit of fun, or if you are a more experienced 5K runner, why not carry a bit of extra weight, just like our crew do when they are attending an incident. Our events aren’t competitive, so you can go at whatever pace you want. Whether you walk, run or jog, you will be raising money for a life-saving service that is needed every day. 

The first 100 adults who enter, will receive a free t-shirt and we hope that anyone who is fortunate to gain a place, will use the opportunity to raise a minimum of £50 in sponsorship. 

Alana Hardy, DSAA’s Fundraising Events Officer said:

Our 5K Twilight Shift is always an inspiring event and we are hoping to build on the success of previous years and make this one better than ever. It’s really special, as people who take part, get to meet members of our crew and often see the aircraft depart should our team be needed to respond to an incident.
The atmosphere is really fun, but the cause is so very important. People who join us on the day and raise money in sponsorship will be helping us to continue saving lives, today, tomorrow and in the future. I would encourage everyone, no matter your age or ability to register and take part. We can’t wait to see you there!
