The Dam Fast 5K Series originated on Lake Oroville Dam in 2008 as a way to truly test the progress of one’s fitness. Participants run the same course once a month for four months. At the end of the series the person with the highest percentage of improvement (or negative overall time) will win a prize! This is one series where being the fastest runner doesn’t ensure winning.
