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.
The first Wednesday of each month (except July), June through September
- June 4
- July 9
- August 6
- September 3
Participants are grouped by current ability. Don't sell yourself short here, let's be honest. Here are our descriptions:

Intermediate: Consistent runner of more than 6 months (3+ days a week). Participates in races for personal improvement and camaraderie.
