Location: Lime Kiln Lane Car Park, Lime Kiln Lane, Bridlington, Date: Friday 15th April 2022 Time: 10:00
Unfortunately, the 2021 Bridlington Easter 5 Mile Dash has fallen victim to the Covid pandemic and we have been forced, for the second successive year, to cancel the race.
We are confidently expecting this popular event to return on Good Friday in 2022. Once we have the appropriate permissions, more details will then be added to this page and entries are expected to be open in the summer of 2021, so please do come back and check – and look out for announcements on our social media pages.
Well established on the local running calendar, this Easter dash offers a running event for all the family, plus Easter eggs and other seasonal goodies and a medal for all finishers.
The race uses the footpaths and trails within the grounds of Sewerby Hall as well as on the cliff top. Two-for-one vouchers for admission to Sewerby Hall will be mailed to all entrants and will be available on the day to collect. The race will also be looking to make a donation to a local charity.
Please note the course is unsuitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs as some of the course is on grass and woodland trails.
The event includes a short children's race, Nordic Walking and an Adults Fun Run.

The race will start on the grass adjacent to the car park. Participants will head out onto the roadway towards Sewerby Hall and cover a two lap route through the grounds and surrounding areas of Sewerby Hall. The route is an undulating multi-terrain course. Due to the route's multi-terrain nature, it is unable to carry a certificate of course accuracy, but the route is as close to 5 miles as GPS technology will allow.
The route will be clearly marked using large route arrows, as well as being marshalled throughout. Please note that even though the route is closed to traffic, we will be sharing the course with the Bridlington Land Train, which will have right of way on the course.
First Aid St John Ambulance or another medical provider will be in attendance on the day and the course will be marshalled to provide assistance. There will also be a sweep marshal following the race to ensure that nobody is left behind and that all runners are accounted for.
Your individual time and position will be recorded by your electronic chip. We will endeavour to display results as they come into the race centre. Results will be uploaded to www.nice-work.org.uk as soon as possible after the race. All entrants that have supplied a valid and legible email address will receive a copy of the results as soon as possible after the race.

"Really great organisation, lovely organisers, fabulous marshals (thank you!). We entered late so had to pick our numbers up on the day; no rush, no fuss, nothing - the numbers were easily to hand and given with a smile :) The marshals were super, clapping and shouting encouragement for everyone and were super smiley. They were placed at regular intervals so (other than a small mishap!) no one got lost.
I was there with quite a few of my running group, many were there just with their families and some individuals. There was a variety of paces run so it's definitely suitable for all runners and abilities. The route was around the cliff twice, then through the gardens at Sewerby. The course included grass, path and bark and went past some wonderful flowers and through woodland.
Overall, I really, really enjoyed it and will definitely be back next year. Lovely local feel, without the snobbery that some smaller events are tainted with. A big thanks to the organisers :) "
