Event Details

Due to our current pandemic and our desire to protect the health of our runners and club members, we are moving the Best Dam Run to Prevent Child Abuse to a virtual event. Now, more than ever, the organizations we support need financial help to continue serving families, children and individuals.

Anytime between 12 a.m. September 21 and 11:59 p.m. September 27, 2020, run or walk the distance you register for. Send your time to us along with a screen shot of your distance. We'll post the results after the 27th.

Participant t-shirts, pull-overs and medals will be available for pick-up approximately three weeks after the virtual race ends.

Registration Includes:

5K registration fee includes a short-sleeve t-shirt
10K registration fee includes a long-sleeve t-shirt and medal
Half marathon registration fee includes a long-sleeve hooded pullover and a medal


Because the event is virtual, we will not be offering prizes or awards for 2020.
