The Race

The Dash & Dine 5k Run is Boulder's favorite spring tune-up race series. This family-friendly race is a series of six races Tuesday nights in April and May held at the beautiful Boulder Reservoir in Boulder, CO.

2021 Dates: April 13, 20, 27 - May 11, 18, 25

In 2021 things will still be a bit different due to COVID.

Detailed instructions will be sent to each participant after registration but here are the basics.

There will be NO Race Day Registration

All registration will need to be done online the day before

You can choose your start time between 6:00 pm and 6:40 pm

Masks are required before and after the race and try to maintain a distance of at least 6' between each other.

If you are or have recently been sick or believed to be exposed to COVID, please stay home. We are happy to transfer your registration to another date.

There will be a strict time frame that each runner will need to adhere to so that we can maintain acceptable social distancing and stay in compliance with the City of Boulder and Boulder County health guidelines:

  • Runners can only pick up their bib 15 minutes before their start time
  • Runners will enter the staging area 10 minutes before their wave start
  • Runners will enter the starting area 5 minutes before wave start time
  • When runners finish the race, they will be expected to flow out the finish area, pick up their "to-go bag" and head back to their cars.

Results will be posted online asap after your wave finishes.


The races are held at the Boulder Reservoir with the start and finish at the main parking lot. The 5k course is relatively flat and fast, out through the park and across the reservoir dams then back again.
