The Flash Dash is being postponed to August 8th, 2020.

New Date: 8/8/2020

Due to the current novel coronavirus pandemic, we will be postponing the Flash Dash until August 8th, 2020.  We do not feel we can host The Flash Dash in May without putting our participants, spectators, and volunteers at risk.  We remain hopeful that the recent measures put in place by many health organizations and government officials will curtail the spread of this disease. 

We understand this new date may not work for all registrants. So, we are offering registrants the following options:

1.       Join us for a rescheduled Flash Dash event on Saturday, August 8th at 8:30 a.m. at Chicken N Pickle.

2.       Convert your registration to a virtual registration and participate virtually when and where you would like. Packet pick up including race tee and medal can be picked up in August.  Virtual registration packets will not be mailed out.

We hope you are staying safe and healthy during this difficult time.  We look forward to seeing you in August.  Keep going, everyone!
