Join us on Saturday 20th May 2023 for the first ever Pride-Tide-Dash, 5km fun run!
Whether you walk or run, come along and be a part of the UK Pride in Weston Tide Dash, an event for the whole family to come together and enjoy the beautiful Sandbay coastline and help raise important funds for community LGBTQ+ services.
The Dash will start at Kewstoke community hall at 11am, stretching across the beautiful Sand Bay coast up to Sandpoint and back.
For those not taking part in the Pride Tide Dash, there will be plenty to do at Kewstoke Community Hall with Children's activities and attractions on the lawns, trader stalls as well as food and drinks.
All money raised will support the many vital LGBTQ+ support groups and initiatives delivered by our friends, North Somerset LGBTQ+ Forum. Showing your support at this event and helping us raise important funds means a lot to us all within the community and ensure the important services so many within our community rely upon can continue to be provided, so let's make this a Pride Tide Dash a to remember!
