Sign up today for Air Ambulance 5K Twilight Shift


The Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance is hosting their annual 5K Twilight Shift on Saturday, 6th July 2024 at Henstridge Airfield, the charity’s operational base. With only 500 spots available, participants can register now to secure their place.
This event welcomes runners, joggers, and walkers of all abilities, whether participating individually, with family, or in groups. It’s a perfect opportunity for team building or just a fun afternoon of exercise. 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 the air ambulance team need to 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 the charity hopes that anyone who is fortunate to gain a place, will use the opportunity to raise a minimum of £50 in sponsorship.
Alana Hardy, Fundraising Events Officer, says: ‘Our 5K Twilight Shift is always an inspiring event and we are hoping to make this one better than ever. It’s really special – people get to meet members of our crew and often see the aircraft depart. The atmosphere is really fun, but the cause is so very important. People who jraise money in sponsorship will be helping us to continue saving lives. No matter your age or ability, register and take part. We can’t wait to see you there!”
Register here now. Entrance fees are £15 for adults and £10 for under 16s (children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult).
