School Cup Challenge

This year due to COVID-19 restriction much-loved Beachside Dash has gone virtual and so too has the Beachside Dash School Cup Challenge!

The School Cup Challenge is a competition held within the Beachside Dash Charity Fun Run and is a great opportunity for primary school children to take part representing their school.

Students have the chance to help win $1000 for their school and win race prizes for themselves.

To participate in the Primary School Challenge:

  • Participants must attend the school in years K-6
  • there must be a minimum of 5x 2km participants from each school
  • 1st prize will be awarded to the primary school with the most 2km participants overall

The School Cup Challenge Prize is

  1. A $1000.00 voucher for the winning school
  2. Beachside Dash School Cup Challenge Perpetual Trophy
  3. Visit from SSMRF with the opportunity for a school-wide assembly featuring the trophy presentation, medical researcher guest speaker, Beachside Dash ambassadors.

The competition is open to Primary School students from St George and Sutherland Shire schools in the 2km event.

The winner of the School Cup Challenge will be announced on Monday 30th November 2020. The winner will be announced on our website, social media and the school will be contacted. We will then organise a time to come in and present the trophy at your school assembly.
