Last week, the unique and exciting children�s athletics event Durham Dash took place in Durham city centre. The event saw young athletes from 24 local primary schools taking part in road races and field competitions as part of the Change4Life initiative, who were also the title sponsors.

Aiming to encourage parents, children, and families in general from across the North East to move more and eat well, the event was also supported by Durham County Council and the Durham & Chester le Street School Sports Partnership, who work to develop and deliver PE and sporting opportunities to young people and schools in Durham.

There were road races for boys and girls aged from Year 3 to Year 6 as well as field events and a winner's presentation at the end of the evening.

Taking place right next to Durham Cathedral, the atmosphere of the event was incredible and there was a huge turnout of spectators and parents alike to support all of the young athletes!

Nouveau Dance & Fitness provided the warm-up routine for all of the runners, preparing the athletes for each heat to ensure the kids were ready to race! We also performed a dance at the end of the night to finish what was a brilliant evening.

We are a community fitness company, and firmly believe in creating a fun environment to help young people enjoy exercising and improve their health and wellbeing, so participating in this event and seeing children getting involved in sport was brilliant.
