Welcome to our 7th Annual Hero Dash Fest

Due to a combination of things, we will not be able to offer our 5K and 15K races this year. However, please read below on what we're able to do instead.

This year, we will be offering a Treasure Hunt for runners and walkers, kids and adults. Here are the details:

  • We have five trails totaling roughly seven miles of distance. 
  • On each trail, you will find some treasure in a marked place on the trail. Detail will be provided ahead of time to help you locate it. 
  • If you would like to run the trails competitively, we will have an official start time of 9:30 a.m. The first three people who find all five pieces of treasure will receive a prize.
  • If you would like to bring your family or meet with friends and hike the trails at your leisure, you can hike from 10:00 a.m. through 4:00 p.m.
  • If you're looking to run for fun or hike for fun, you can go on any number of trails you like.

Additional Information:

  • We strongly encourage families to come and spend the day exploring our woods. This is open to everybody.
  • We will be maintaining social distancing throughout the day. The benefit of our site is that we have 753 acres to spread out.
  • Food offerings will include hot dogs and water, which will be handed out by specific individuals.
  • This event is by donation only. Shirts will be available for purchase when signing up online.
