- We will be running two teams – dark and light – day and night….!
- Each day covers approx 100 miles running with the two support crews swapping midway-ish.
- We finish in RAF Lossiemouth on the afternoon early evening of the 11th, stay in Elgin overnight and then depart and return some vehicles to Birmingham where people can get the train home from there.
- All accommodation on the event will be hotels – most of this will be twin sharing rooms.

Also if you can’t help, but you know of any doctors or paramedics that may be able to help with this that would be great and could you forward this on.
On Saturday 5 October, members of the legendary RAF No. 617 ‘Dambusters’ Squadron will embark on a heroic challenge to run 700 miles in just 7 days to raise money for our charity. The run starts at the site of the very first Cheshire home, Le Court in Hampshire, and ends at RAF Lossiemouth near Inverness, the home of the Dambusters, on the afternoon of Friday 11 October.
The 700-mile route will pass through landmarks in Dambusters history, and will be a great opportunity for local people all over the country to come out, cheer on and sponsor the Dambusters as they pass through their town. The money raised will help us to provide unparalleled care for people with severe disabilities.
The Dambusters Run is part of our partnership with 617 Squadron marking the 70th anniversary of their formation. Our founder, Group Captain Leonard Cheshire, commanded the squadron during World War II.
