The Dyslexia Dash will include both a 5km run and 1 mile kids run for children ten years of age and under. The 1 mile kids run begins at 8:00 am.  The 5km run begins at 8:30am. All participants will receive a swag bag with a t-shirt and race participant medal at the end of the race.  There will also be a kids play area, a disc jockey, an awards ceremony and sponsor tents to visit.

For those choosing the virtual race, participants run their own course and we can post their times.  As soon as you register you can run the race.
