Spirit Of Monmouth Running Club resurrected the Kymin Dash in 2013. At the first meeting it was decided that the race would raise money for charity as well as provide a race in Monmouth for runners from across the South West to take part in.
The total raised so far is £4750.00 with additional contribution from Barclays Bank which means that £9500.00 has been donated to charity.

In 2018 we will be raising funds for The Stroke Association Wales
In Wales, around 7,000 people every year have a stroke, while nearly 65,000 people are living with the long term effects of stroke.
The Stroke Recovery Service is a flexible and tailored service designed to support stroke survivors, their families and carers with recovery after a stroke.
They actively campaign to improve services for stroke survivors and their carers as well as for better prevention, detection and treatment of stroke. Work with politicians of all parties to ensure stroke remains high on the Welsh Government’s agenda. Communicate the views of stroke survivors and their carers to policy makers, the NHS and local government in Wales.
