The Omega Walnut Diva Dash will take place on Saturday May 10th, 2014. This year we will have a 5K and a 10K. Both of these events are part of our year long race series and they will be targeted by our training programs; Fleet Feet Spring 2014 No Boundaries (Couch to 5k), Intermediate 5K, and Walk Fit training programs .
WHEN AND WHERE
Saturday May 10th, 2014 at One Mile Recreation Area in Bidwell Park. The 10K will start at 8:15 AM near the entrance to the park on South Park Dr. The 5K will start further up on the same street near the picnic tables at 8:30AM.
We have also brought back in store registration! Feel free to stop by the store whenever you would like to sign up for the Diva Dash.
Please note: Race entries are not transferable to another person and there are no refunds.
The 5K is open to both runners and walkers and serves as a graduation run for the Fleet Feet Spring 2014 No Boundaries program, the Intermediate 5K program, as well as the Walk Fit program. The 5K route will be the pre-marked course in the park with water and Nuun stations just before and after the Cedar Grove Bridge.
The 10K is open to runners only and will also be the pre-marked course in the park. Water and Nuun stations will be available on both sides of the Cedar Grove Bridge as well as the Manzanita bridge at the end of lower park.
You may register either as an individual or in teams. Teams consist of 2-generation, 3-generation and new to this year Sorority teams (consisting of 5 or more)!
Both events are open to strollers we just ask that you start behind the other runners or walkers. If you like to listen to music while participating please keep one earbud out for your own safety.
The Diva Dash 5K and 10K will both be part of the 2014 Madison Bear Garden Race Series. The series is free to sign up for but you must register before the race. Pick up a registration form in the store or print it out and turn it in to us!
