The 2020 Candy Cane Dash 5K Will

Be A "Virtual" Experience.

                    We are going virtual, Dec. 5 - 20th, which means that you can choose where and when to run/walk/skip/hop your 5K between those dates.  If we hold an in-person event, it will be an untimed 5k fun run to be held on Saturday, December 5th.

Virtual registrants will have the first crack at participating in the in-person event.

Sorry, there will be no virtual 1K option in 2020.
