Event Description

Looking to walk/run the most unusual course in the world? You’ll discover it on Saturday, Sept. 16, 2023 at Discovery Park of America.

The route meanders through a 50-acre heritage park that features a man-made river flowing through the extensively landscaped property, along with waterfalls, bridges and other water features. No place else can you dash by a 120-year-old church, an 1800s frontier settlement, a reproduction of a town from the early 19th Century and a complete vintage train station.

From dynamic race day check-in and pre-race entertainment to the dramatic inflatable archway finish line, finisher’s certificates and winner’s medals, you won’t want to miss a moment.

Stick around after the event and explore the 100,000-square-foot museum and enjoy Pediatric Day 2023. Children 17 and under receive free admission on this day thanks to Pediatric Place of Union City, and Discovery Dashers each receive two free admission tickets.

Awards are presented in the 5K and 10K for males and females in the age categories of:

12 and under
