The 1 mile Don Drumm Dash gives our kids the opportunity to feel the excitement of racing on Marietta College's track!  Parents can watch their kids have a great time racing and feel secure knowing they are on a closed road and bike path.  And, for adults, this is a great race for those that wish to sprint to the finish, or casually walk a mile.  It's up to you!

Don't want to race but still want to support the event?  Allow a child to run/walk for FREE by registering as "RUN FOR ME".  Imagine the excitement of a child getting to race at the Don Drumm Stadium and receiving a t-shirt and medal.  Priceless!

Please join us on Sunday, October 8th for this amazing event!  There will be plenty of parking beside the Don Drumm Stadium.  Guests of race participants will have the convenience of the Don Drumm facility to relax, eat at the concession stand and cheer on their athletes as they start and cross the finish line inside the Don Drumm Stadium!  Race participants will have 13 hydration stations, port-a-john's along the course, massage tent and medical tent upon completing the course.
