This past weekend we organized the very first Dash to the Bash. And it was a ton of fun!! As race host rookies, we learned a lot. I have been a race participant for many years. It was very fun to be on the other side being a race organizer. I look forward to next year and for the 2nd Dash to the Bash in 2017.
It was a beautiful day to run and walk. I loved that the course started on the Bash ground and took us into the beautiful Humboldt Park. After the run, participants were able to head over and enjoy the Bash festivities. And that was one of our goals going into this event….. to make the Bash an all day event. Come early and enjoy everything the Bay View Bash has to offer.
Plus as a fitness family, we want to spread fitness fun to the community. This event welcomed runners and walkers of all abilities. For some, this was their first 5K EVER! It’s always a joy to help support people in healthy activities and their goals.
And I have to send out a thank you to ALL the participants. For our first year, I was very pleased with our turn out. The Dash to the Bash is just an extension of the Bay View Bash fundraising efforts and 100% of the proceeds went to the Bay View Community Fund.
Our event was manually timed this year. We had a little confusion at the end with handing finishing tags in. Some participants did not hand in tags or handed them in not immediately after they finished. So we do have most of the results, but not everyone’s. We apologize if we missed you! If you see a (W) by the name that stands for a walker.
