Dorothea Dix Park 5K

Dix Park 5K runners pose before the race

Run or walk with friends and family through the beautiful grounds of the Dix Park campus at the Dorothea Dix Park 5K.  Our signature race returns for its second year, this time as part of the 2020 Dorothea Dix Park Race Series presented by Runologie and Trophy Brewing Company.

Additionally there will be a Kid's Fun Run before the 5K.  There is no fee for the fun run and parents can sign up their children on race day.

Proceeds from the race support Phase 1 design and construction efforts moving forward as we create a park for everyone.
