The fastest and freshest event in the Essex running calendar!


Whether you’re just starting out on your running journey and completing your first mile, or you’re looking to smash your one mile PB in style, run along Southend’s iconic Pier this March in the first ever Southend Pier Dash. 

There are only 100 places available so register today!

Home: Welcome

We’d like to say a huge thank you to all of our runners at today’s first ever Pier Dash. The event was a massive success and you can now see your results over on the Race Time Result website.

Thank you for bearing with us for registration and apologies to those of you who couldn’t get in to the pier. You were all very patient and in the end the race started on time and was a huge success! 

We are still tallying up the funds raised so watch this space for a final total. It’s not too late to share your fundraising pages, and a quick social media post or message to your friends is a very powerful way to help us raise more money to support local people experiencing homelessness!

If your result is not showing this is because the chips had to be on shoes to be guaranteed to work. We are able to add times if you have a Garmin or Strava result that you can share with us. So, if your result isn’t showing, please do contact us and we will get your time added. 

Thanks again to all of you and we are very much looking forward to another Pier Dash in 2023! 

All the best, from Team HARP

Fundraising for


Southend Pier Dash is a HARP event. HARP is Southend-on-Sea’s leading homelessness charity. On average we help around 1,000 local people every year to overcome or avoid homelessness. In addition to providing essential short-term emergency shelter, food, clothing and washing facilities, we work to identify the root causes of homelessness, creating tailored support for each person’s circumstances. We achieve success by providing structure, purpose and training opportunities, and by providing longer-term supported housing, empowering people to take steps to leave homelessness behind and ultimately live independently in the community.

By taking part in Southend Pier Dash, we make it easy to fundraise for HARP. Simply set up your fundraising page after registering for the event, share the link with friends and family and encourage people to donate on your social media channels. 

Every penny raised will help support local people taking steps to overcome homelessness for good.
