The Dash & Dine 5k run, Boulder's favorite spring tune-up run series is Back for 2021. Six family-friendly races are held Tuesday nights in April and May at the beautiful Boulder Reservoir in Boulder, CO.

Boulder County has now gone to level BLUE which means we can get back more fun at the series.

COVID 19 accommodations will include but not limited to:
Masks are highly recommended at the starting area and food lines.
Wave starts with safe starting distances
Separate Start and Finish lines

& Dine & Go

This year we will have a food option that will be easy to pick up and go after the race so we can maintain social distancing.

Family Friendly

The race can be as competitive as you like, the field is a wonderful mix of runners of all ages.

Spring Tune Ups

The Dash & Dine is a great way to tune up for many other spring and summer racing, FKTs or general fitness.

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

Great news! As of April 16, Boulder County COVID restrictions have been lifted to level Blue, which means that we can get back to close to a normal schedule for our events.

But, we will still be taking a few precautions to ease social distancing at bib pick up, registration, the start line, and on the course. So please be respectful of others around you as we navigate through the evening.

We will reduce our wave start down to 3 waves while keeping them 5 minutes apart to allow us to help spread of participants at the start line, the course, and for the food line. The waves will start at 6:10, 6:15, and 6:20. We hope this will accommodate those early runners as well as those who need a little more time. If you would like a little extra space at the start line, you are welcome to take your time and start after everyone else in that wave has set off.

We will maintain our separate Start and Finish lines for now so again we can ease the crowds in any one area.

More Race Details

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.


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.
