Sign up for the Fifth Annual Dash to Bash Epilepsy by joining your friends to run/walk to the top of Cedar Rapids Mount Trashmore. Participate in what has fast become one of the most challenging race/walk events in the Midwest. With more than 600 participants last year, nowhere can you experience the fun and sense of accomplishment from viewing our city from it’s most scenic vantage point.
The race begins at 8:00 AM in front of the National Czech Slovak Museum and designated parking will be plenty. Participants will each receive a beautiful one of a kind race t-shirt and awards will go to the top finishers. A short awards ceremony will take place immediately after the race. Post race food and drink will be available and a post race party will help you relax.
The 5k course winds through Czech Village and then runners will make a steep 208 foot climb to the top of Mount Trashmore, a recently closed and now landscaped solid waste landfill. Race proceeds will support the Epilepsy Foundation of Iowa for seizure education & outreach.
Packet pick-up will be on Friday, September 7th from 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM in the vicinity of the National Czech Slovak Museum. Registration is $30 through September 4th., 18 and younger $15.
