2019 marks our running festival’s 6th year! This is a wonderful opportunity to challenge yourself and spend a day at a beautiful place. Our Hero Dash 15K, 5K, and One-Mile Fun Run courses take you along some of the most beautiful parts of our property. The festival also includes access to our 30-foot climbing tower for anyone looking for an extra challenge after your race. Races are professionally timed by Pretzel City Sports.

Awards: Top 3 overall, top 3 in each age group. Best superhero costume. All paid participants (excludes Kids’ Dash) who register by 9/7/2019 will receive a high-quality tech shirt. Those who register after 9/7/2019 will get a shirt as supplies last.

Silent Auction: The event includes a silent auction that is held throughout the morning. Items include gift cards, homemade baskets, and baked goods. All payment methods are accepted for the auction.

Food: Some will say that our food is what makes our event so popular. Food offerings typically include hot dogs, bagels, s’mores, fruit, coffee, water, and ziti. If you come with someone who isn’t running, no problem. They can eat too, though we wouldn’t mind a donation to cover that expense. 

Overnight Lodging: For $15 per person, you can stay onsite the night before with a group of up to eight people on our Adventure Site. No, our cabins don’t have electricity, but we will have a bonfire and some snacks when you arrive, and we will also provide breakfast the morning of the race.   

Registration opens at 8:30 a.m.  The 15K begins at 9:30, with the Fun Run at 10:00 and the 5K at 10:05 a.m.  Registration forms will be available for race day registration. The silent auction ends/15K awards are announced typically around 11:30.
