The Gavin Tipper 5K race is held at DK every June and is in memory of Gavin Tipper.
The Gavin Tipper Race is held in memory of Gavin with all proceeds from the race going to Action Heart. Gavin was a member of DK Rugby Club playing for many years and is part of DK Rugby history by scoring DK's only tri at Twickenham. After retiring from the game he gave something back to sport by coaching children at Black Country Triathletes, Tipton Harriers as well as Halesowen cycling. His encouragement of children in sport and passion for everybody taking part is one of the reason the Gavin Tipper 5K is so popular.
The race is for all abilities it is one of the few chances the children can go up against adults (and beat them). The race also coincides with the DK beginners runners course that culminates in the beginners taking part in the 5k race.
Numbers and Chips will be distributed on the night

this is working farm land so please take your rubbish home with you.
The 10k is fully marshalled and multi terrain 10k over open fields, tracks and lanes.
If wet, trail shoes would suffice rather than spikes.
