The 7th Annual Monster Dash 10K, 5K & 1 Mile Run/Walk Or Roll is presented by the Now You See Me Foundation.
We encourage the physically challenged to compete! Dress up, have a blast and support a great cause!
Start your Halloween off with a Run, Walk or Roll! Your entry fees help make Now You See Me's mission possible, together we can drive positive change in spinal cord research and provide vital support to those affected by spinal cord injuries; in addition aid and support cyclists and runners in Texas, who have been tragically affected by death or debilitating injuries sustained while training.
This Year, Monster Dash will return to Eisenhower Park BUT this year, we’re having it on Saturday, October 26th, 19399 N.W. Military Hwy. SA, TX. with a start time of 9:30 am. It is such a beautiful park! We’ve had great weather in the past … knock on wood! It's a challenging course with a ghostly incline and a witchy switch back at the midpoint. Yes you can still run if you’re late; it’s chip timed - your time starts when you cross the start line.
Every registrant ages 5 and over will receive an Event T-shirt, finisher medal and post-race meal! T-Shirt cut off will be Oct. 18th! Last year we almost sold out at 400+ runners. This year we are shooting for the same turnout! Last year was epic, so the later you wait, you may not get a T-shirt or get a slot.

Info on PACKET PICKUP:
*Friday October 25th, From 4-8pm: Columbia Sportswear Store at the Quarry, located at 255 E Basse Rd. This is where participants can collect their race packets.
Columbia Sportswear is partnering with NYSM for their Community Outreach Program, and this collaboration benefits both the organization and its supporters. Here's some additional information to help NYSMF get the maximum donation possible.
Community Outreach Program: Columbia Sportswear has committed to donating a percentage of all sales driven between 10/25 thru 11/7 back to NYSM.
Shopping with a 20% Coupon: Participants will receive a 20% off coupon code in their race packets as well as via email.
This is a fantastic opportunity to stock up on outdoor gear, especially with Christmas around the corner.
The coupon is valid not only on regular-priced items but also on sales items.
How to Ensure NYSMF Receives Credit:
To make sure that NYSMF receives credit for your purchase, it's important to present the coupon or mention the NYSMF campaign at register when making your purchase.
This partnership not only benefits NYSM but also offers a great discount to participants, making it a win-win situation for all involved.
*Note* You don't need to be a Monster Dash participant to receive discount and support NYSMF. The email I send reminding you of race day and details you receive the few days before will have the coupon attached and can be forwarded to your friends, family or neighbors. A simple NYSMF mention at register will also count. NYSMF will get credit thru 11/4. Coupon will also be available on our website and FB & Instagram.
*Thursday, October 24th, you can do so at the Chick-Fil-A located at 281/Evans from 4-7pm.
Yes you can do PPU on race day but we kindly ask if you can arrange to do so on the two days offered. Makes it a lot less stressful on race day! xoxo
