The Dormont Dash is a decades-long South Hills tradition, and one of the most challenging, hilly, and fun 5K races in the area!  Presented by the Borough of Dormont Recreation Board, all proceeds raised from the 5K run and 1-mile fun run benefits the Keystone Oaks Education Association Memorial Scholarship Fund.  The race begins and ends at the iconic Dormont Pool, and the course allows runners and walkers to enjoy the beauty of the park and the charming community of Dormont.  All ages are welcome to participate so bring a friend, significant other, or the whole family to support a great cause!

Packet Pickup

Packets will be available in the Dormont Pool Lobby (1801 Dormont Avenue, Dormont, PA 15216) on Friday, September 6, 2024 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. We encourage you to pick-up your race bib and swag items the Friday before the race to prevent lines at registration on the day of the event.

The Dormont Dash course will take you on a great tour of our local neighborhoods beginning and ending in Dormont Park.
