Welcome to our 7th Annual Hero Dash Fest. We invite you to run or walk one of the most scenic racecourses in Pennsylvania. Our 15K is a challenging mix of roads and trails that will take you along four lakes. Our 5K will take you along two lakes, while our 1-Mile Out and Back will lead you along Lake Pocono Plateau. Races are professionally timed by Pretzel City Sports, and paid participants by 9/5 will receive one of our awesome tech shirts.

Awards: Top overall for the 5K and 15K, top 3 male and female in each age group: <19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+

Shirts: All paid participants (excludes Kids' Dash) who register by 9/5/2019 will receive a high-quality tech shirt. 

Overnight Lodging: $15 per person. You will be assigned a rustic cabin on our Adventure Site. Lodging includes access to our bathhouse, a campfire with snacks on Friday night, and breakfast the morning of the race. 

Food: Hot dogs, bagels, muffins, s'mores, ziti, fruit, coffee. We have GREAT food. If you come to support a runner, feel free to eat as well (though we wouldn't mind a donation to cover that expense).
