We are very excited to announce the details of the 2014 Doc Dash! As usual, we will be holding a 5k run/walk. New this year, we will also be holding a Fun Run for children before the start of the 5k and then providing a "kids corral" with educational STEM based activities for grade K-8 during the 5k race. Children 4 and older are invited to the "kids corral" during the 5k race free of charge.
We are also happy to announce that Z102.9 will be broadcasting live from 2014 Doc Dash

About the Fun Run
The children's fun run is a new addition this year. The children's run will consist of a roughly 1 mile course which will have stops along the way so that the kids can pick up stickers and other prizes. The interactive race course is meant to inspire kids to have fun while doing something healthy. Because our goal is to get children from the community out doing a healthy activity, both the 1 mile fun run and the 5k are FREE to children under 14.
Thank you to everyone for making Doc Dash 2014 such a success. We had a great turn out!Race Routes can be found here!
