Story

Join the 12th Duchenne Dash and cycle with us from London to Paris in 24 hours!

The Duchenne Dash is Duchenne UK's annual signature VIP cycling event. Over the past 11 years, the Dash has grown into our biggest and most challenging fundraising event of the year and has raised more than £7million for Duchenne muscular dystrophy research (DMD).

An example of the vital work the Duchenne Dash funds is research to treat cardiomyopathy, a heart condition associated with DMD which involves cardiac fibrosis, arrhythmias, and heart failure. Thanks to the Duchenne Dashers, Duchenne UK is funding research to identify markers of cardiac fibrosis in the blood which will allow for better diagnosis and management of it.

The Duchenne Dash will take place on 17-18 May 2024.

Your journey will start at the Herne Hill Velodrome, South East London, working your way down the country to Newhaven and boarding the overnight ferry to Dieppe. You'll get the chance to rest before getting straight back on the saddle, taking in the stunning views of the French countryside and towns on your way to the French capital. You’ll arrive at the triumphant finish line under the Eiffel Tower.

You’ll make new friends, special memories, while preparing for and taking part in the Duchenne Dash is a great way to improve your own heart’s health!

Most importantly, you’ll make a real difference in the fight to end Duchenne.
