We will likely offer at least one Covid-safe drive-up packet pickup event so that locals can pick their bibs and swag up prior to the event.

Do not expect there to be race-day packet pickup.

Mailing of packets (it can't be worse than 2020, right?) if necessary, will be done much earlier and from GOTR HQ so that we can more closely control the timeline.

Be advised that the Candy Cane Dash has a No Refund/No Transfer policy.

We still need you ​to volunteer!

Frederick's favorite holiday season running tradition for the entire family!

​At this point we expect that we will be offering both virtual and (hopefully) in-person registration options in 2021.

We hope to be able to offer you event changing options 

up until November 1st.

​Due to uncertainty regarding pandemic restrictions, the in-person field may be limited, with those registered earliest given first priority to attend if conditions dictate.

Great SWAG!

Once again, expect to get great swag at the 2021 Candy Cane Dash, regardless of whether we are in-person, virtual or a mix of the two.
