The Dormont Dash is a decades-long South Hills tradition, and one of the most challenging, hilly, and fun 5K races in the area! Presented by the Borough of Dormont Recreation Board, all proceeds raised from the 5K run and 1-mile fun run benefits the Keystone Oaks Education Association Memorial Scholarship Fund. The race begins and ends at the iconic Dormont Pool, and the course allows runners and walkers to enjoy the beauty of the park and the charming community of Dormont. All ages are welcome to participate so bring a friend, significant other, or the whole family to support a great cause!
Save by registering early!
Early Bird Registration: May 8 - May 31, 2023
Regular Registration: June 1 - August 27, 2023
Late Registration: After August 27, 2023 (Note: Please register early as late registration does not guarantee race medal or swag and availability will depend on quantity remaining).
There will be NO race day registration this year.
Packets will be available in the Dormont Pool Lobby (1801 Dormont Avenue, Dormont, PA 15216) on Friday, September 8, 2023 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. We encourage you to pick-up your race bib and swag items the Friday before the race to prevent lines at registration on the day of the event. For those that need to pick-up packets the day of the race, please make sure to arrive early that Sunday morning (between 6:30 and 7:30 a.m.).
The shirt and medal for 2023 are shown below! All participants will receive a custom finishers medal. Participants will also have the option to purchase a commemorative race day shirt (if pre-ordered by 8/22/23). A VERY limited amount of t-shirts will be available for purchase at an additional charge while supplies last at packet pick-up and/or race day.
Only as supplies last, participants who pick-up their race bibs will also receive swag bags with a Dormont Music & Street Festival water bottle and a number of goodies donated by local businesses. Thanks to those who have donated items for our runners for 2023: Dormont Historical Society, Dormont Appliance, Millie's, Ready, and to NovaCare Rehab who will be on-site to provide movement/injury screening, stretching, and taping before and after the race!
The Dormont Dash course will take you on a great tour of our local neighborhoods beginning and ending in Dormont Park.
