During 2024, DFR celebrate our 20th birthday, to mark this milestone we are attempting to complete the following 20(ish) challenges.


1) DFR weekend away and ceilidh

Challenge organisers – Jon, Becca, Andy C
Date – Sat 22nd – Sun 23rd June

“🥳 DATE FOR YOUR DIARY – DFR 20th Birthday! 🥳

On Saturday 22nd June we are heading to Dufton to celebrate all things DFR! Details are still being finalised but there will be the opportunity to head out on a social run or two followed by an evening of food, drinks and ceilidh dancing 🕺

The evening’s events will be held in Dufton Village Hall so there are plenty of options to make a full weekend of it by staying locally at the campsite or in a nearby holiday cottage.

We’d love to see as many members there as possible to celebrate an amazing 20 years of our club! Friends and family welcome 😊”. Social sec. Becca.

      “Hi Everyone! I’m arranging the DFR Hamsterly Park Run 20 Challenge. I’m proposing Saturday 9th March meet at Hamsterly for the 9am 5k park run then brunch at 10.30am at the Forest Cafe. I have spoken to the Forest Cafe who has advised that preordering would be best so we can all eat together!

      I thought this would be a great opportunity to join in with our families, pets etc either running that morning or volunteering.

      Please could you let me know [via the post on DFR Members FB] asap if you can attend that day, breakfast choice (see attached pic) and whether you’re running or volunteering. This is going to be a great morning with all you lovely people!” Nicky.
