Dragonfly Week starts the third week of July and we are so excited to introduce our You Can Fly Dragonfly 1M, 5K, 10K, 13.1, 26.2 race! You will get this awesome 5 inch GLITTER medal! It’s HUGE! Dragonflies can travel upwards of 45 miles per hour. They can fly backwards, hover like a helicopter, and change direction with seemingly impossible speed. They do all this by flapping their wings only 30 times per minute. To give you some perspective, a mosquito flaps its wings 600 times per minute. Because of this, dragonflies take on the role of spiritual guides for us. They are powerful yet graceful – even in high wind. They show us how to navigate life’s storms with confidence and ease. They motivate us to let go of whatever holds us down or holds us back. On our medal we’ve added the quote from Erin Hanson, “What if I fall? Oh but my darling, what if you fly?” Let’s all take flight and sore like dragonflies!
Plus, we’ll be donating at least 20% from every registration to The Dragonfly Foundation, an amazing organization that helps pediatric cancer families and patients find strength, courage, and joy.
*For a limited time you can purchase an official t-shirt and/or hoodie HERE! (Shirts and hoodies are sold separately on a different site)

*Medals and bibs will ship out within 2 to 5 days of signing up.
Where: You choose the course and you time yourself (you’ll report your finishing time to us).
