The 13th Annual Monster Dash Run for Education

Run either IN-PERSON OR VIRTUALLY! Either way it's going to be awesome! NOTE: ALL IN-PERSON RACE REGISTRATION CLOSES AT 10PM ON FRIDAY, OCT 29! There is NO registration on site on race day.  Please read steps below before registering.

The race profits support grants in Ashland Public Schools through the Ashland Schools Foundation (ASF). In 2020-21, ASF provided over $170,000 in grant support to our local schools, awarding more grants than ever in our 30 year history. Now, we're counting on YOU (and your family, and friends, and neighbors...) to make this year bigger than ever!

See the event website for details on the in-person and virtual events, or learn more about the Ashland Schools Foundation!

Here's how to register...

Step 1

Decide if you'll be racing in-person (at Lithia Park on Saturday, Oct 30), or doing your own virtual race (run and track your own race on a route of your choice between Oct 22 and 31).

Prices are the same for either option. Youth 18 and under are ALWAYS just $10/race!

*If you're registering just to support, but don't plan on running, please use the Virtual option. Our in-person race spaces are limited this year!

Step 2

Decide which distance you'll be registering for (1-Mile, 5K, 10K), and IF IN-PERSON, which race wave you want to choose.  

The 1-Mile starts at 9:30am, 10:30am, and 11:30am.

The 5K starts at 9:00am or 10:30am.

The 10K starts at 8:00am only, so no wave signup needed.

NOTE: In-person Race Registration ENDS at 10pm on Friday, Oct 29. There is no race registration on race day. 

Step 3

Click the button below to register you and your family members at one time (you'll save money on fees).
