Derby Museums are challenging local businesses to take part in a friendly, competitive, timed early morning dash on Tuesday 27 July (7.30am – 8.30am) around the Derby Ram Trail.

The Trail has already been a huge hit as people discover exciting experiences on the ram trail. As part of planned activities Derby Museum are rolling out the Bo-Beep Dash, a ticketed event where teams of up to six make their way around all the rams in 60 minutes, taking a selfie at each one. Ram themed team names and fancy dress are optional though definitely encouraged. Prize categories include Trail Blazer (fastest), Beauty and the Sheep (best costume) and Lord of the Wool (highest fundraiser). Participants are being invited for a coffee and pastry in the Museum of Making following the event.

Mohammed Suleman, Director of Resources at Derby Museums said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for local businesses to re-connect their teams in a really fun way whilst fundraising for Derby Museums. We have suggested minimum donation amounts for entering your teams and any extra donations in support of the Derby Ram Trail will also of course be very welcomed”
