5K Race, Kid’s runs of 0.5 km and 2.5 km
The 2013 BMO Financial Group Downtown Dash will take place the evening of Thursday, July 17, 2014. The Downtown Dash is a 5 kilometre 4-loop run around the Downtown area of Corner Brook for runners of all ages and abilities, so whether this is your first 5 K or you’ve lost count of how many 5 Ks you have run, come out and take part in this ever popular event. There is also a 0.5 km run for the young kids and a 2.5 km run for older ones. You can enter as an individual, or as part of a “Corporate Challenge” Team (see below). PLEASE NOTE that registration, $17.00 per runner (including $2.00 transaction fee), will only be in advance. Kid’s events are free. THERE WILL BE NO 5K REGISTRATION THE DAY OF THE RACE.
Timing: Young kids go on the 0.5 km at 6:00 p.m., older kids do their 2.5 km at 6:15 and the adult race starts as close to 6:30 as possible, but likely nearer 6:40. The runners on the 5 km course have 45 minutes to complete the two loops before we start dismantling the course. Start and Finish are in the City Hall Square with runs commencing at 6:00 p.m.
The United Church is holding a fundraising barbecue on the UC lawn during the Dash event.
Registration: $17.00 (includes $2.00 transaction fee) in advance.
We hope that this year every adult registrant will receive a BMO Downtown Dash t-shirt, but we still advise registering early if you want a shirt. There will be a limited number of shirts available for kids that register on race day. Online registration closed at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 17.
Race Kit pick-up and last-chance registration will be from 5:00-7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 16, in the Humber Room, Greenwood Inn and Suites.
