Darter Dash 5k & 10K

October 21, 2017

darter dash race logoWe’re teaming up with Turkey Creek Nature Preserve to host the Darter Dash 5K/10k on Saturday, October 21. It is a glorious run through the trails at one of Birmingham’s great outdoor treasures. These trails include some moderate elevation and you’ll run along some beautiful stretches beside Turkey Creek. Only a very short period of the 10k will be on pavement, and a portion the 5k will be on pavement.

The Preserve protects a stretch of the creek that is the only place in the world where the Vermilion Darter, as well as other Darter species, live. It is truly a unique and beautiful place.

Packet Pickup & Race-day Registration: The morning of October 21 from 6:30am to 7:45am. The 10k will start at 8 am, and the 5k will follow at 8:15 am.

We’ll have a post-race award ceremony featuring hand-painted awards and a hot breakfast with mimosas will be served for all race participants and their supporters. All proceeds go to fund educational programs at Turkey Creek Nature Preserve.

Register Here!

And a huge thanks to our Sponsors!
