The Artful Dash is back for a 6th edition in 2023! The race has quickly become a wonderful event along the trail that runners and walkers look forward to each October and we are so excited to welcome you this year!
Run or walk this growing race and support the Karl Stirner Arts Trail and ensure its ongoing success. The Arts Trail provides solace for those seeking peace, whether by running, walking, or biking. The race begins behind Don Juan's on North Third Street, and heads onto Bushkill Drive for a quarter-mile, before turning onto the Karl Stirner Arts Trail. Speed past sculptures and works of art or enjoy the sites while walking through the trail. The turnaround and water point are at the 13th Street parking lot.
