Our 4th annual Hero Dash Festival is a wonderful opportunity to challenge yourself and spend a day at a beautiful place. Our Hero Dash 5K and One-Mile Fun Run take you along some of the most beautiful parts of our property. We'll also open up our climbing tower for anyone looking for an extra workout after you finish your run or walk. 

Prizes awarded to the person who shows up in the best costume, and the individual who raises the most money (see fundraising page for more information).

The event includes a silent auction that is held throughout the morning. Items include gift cards, hotel stays at different resorts throughout the Poconos, homemade baskets, and baked goods. All payment methods are accepted for the auction.

Food includes: pizza, s'mores, hot dogs, bagels, water, coffee, fruit, and other items. If you came with a friend or family member who did not participate in a run or walk, they can eat for a donation ($5 recommendation).

**Lodging is available for anyone coming from out of town. You can stay on the property by either bringing a tent or staying in a rustic cabin. Cost is $10 per person and a light breakfast will be provided. Call the office at 570-676-3665 to reserve a spot. 

Registration forms will be available on race day for those unable to register online.  

Awards: Male & Female 1st overall; 3M, 3F < 19; 3M/F 20-29; 3M/F 30-39; 3M/F 40-49; 3M/F 50-59; 3M/F 60-69; 3M/F 70+. Awards are also provided for the individual that raises the most money (please see the fundraising page for additional information).
