The 15th Annual Monster Dash Run for Education

Saturday, October 28, 2023

Run the Monster Dash either IN-PERSON OR VIRTUALLY! Either way it's going to be awesome!  Note: Please read steps below before registering. 

The race profits support grants in Ashland Public Schools through the Ashland Schools Foundation. In 2021-22, ASF provided over $125,000 in grant support to our local schools. Now, we're counting on YOU (and your family, and friends, and neighbors) to make this year's fundraising event bigger than ever!

Here's how to register...

Step 1

Decide if you'll be racing in-person at Lithia Park on Saturday, Oct 28th or doing your own virtual race (running and tracking your own race on a route of your choice between Oct 21st and 31st).

Prices are the same for either option. Youth 18 and under are ALWAYS just $10 per race!

*If you're registering just to give support but don't plan on running, please use the Virtual option. 

Step 2

Decide which distance you'll be registering for (1-Mile, 5K, 10K).

The 5K and 10K start at 9:00am.

The 1-Mile starts at 10:30am.

NOTE: Registration for IN-PERSON races will close at 11:59pm, Friday, Oct 27. There will be no registrations available at the race on race-day, so make sure you register in advance! 

Step 3

Click the button below to register you and your family members at one time (you'll save money on fees).
