The Daffodil Dash 5K held April 27 starting from Irish Eyes on Anglers Road in Lewes attracted a record turnout of runners to raise funds and awareness for the Sussex Consortium autism programs. The race had 211 finishers, and there was also a kids' dash before the race.

Great food was provided by Irish Eyes - can't beat a boiled dog in a sun-drenched stone parking lot - and there was live music on the dock by two guys who were really good but they weren't handing out business cards.
