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+
