No matter your level, there’s a race for everyone, whether you’re running or walking. Races include:

  • 5K, walking-, stroller- and dog-friendly

    May 19-20 at City Park

  • Full marathon (qualifier for the Boston Marathon)
  • Half marathon
  • Urban 10-miler
  • Marathon relay (marathon split between five people)

In addition to the pride of using your run as a way to support DPS students, we also have great incentives and prizes including over $3,000 for DPS schools, running apparel and more!
