The Bench2Bench – Run for Denis – is an annual memorial event that began in March 2008, to honour and remember Denis Nixon.
Denis was an ardent advocate of running and cycling, in which he always encouraged participation.
Those close to Denis pledged to keep his legacy alive and what better way than through a run that shares the outdoors, makes us feel great and allows us to connect with a community of like-minded individuals!
