The Annual Dash & Splash fun-run, a 5km (3 mile) course in sea and on sand, saw around 100 runners start the run outside Shanklin Rowing Club, and finish at Yaverland.

Dash & Splash fund-raises for Aspire Ryde, with medals funded by Sandown & Shanklin Rotary, who also helped marshal alongside Ryde Lions’ Club, and Aspire volunteers.

The event was originally dreamt up by Frederick Fisher, who was on hand with new Rotary president, Ian Fletcher, at the finish line.
