Post Race Expo and Dinner

We will work on getting a few partners out for our post-race expo in May and we will definitely have a post-series party on the last night of the season, May 24 with free beer, prizes, awards, and more!

The Dash (Course)

The course starts at the main parking lot of the Boulder Reservoir. It heads East on Reservoir Road which is paved. About half a mile later, the course turns to packed dirt along the reservoir dams on the South, then East. Halfway on the East dam, the course turns back on itself and heads back along the dams on the same course. Runners return back on the paved road then making a right and a quick dash to the same line as the start.

Runners, please stay on the right side of the road when running.

Timing & Results

Each wave will be professionally chip-timed by Racing Underground. Results will be posted online soon after each wave. Links can be found on this site and on our Facebook page and each Facebook event, so be sure to like our page.

Age Groups

We will be recognizing the Top 3 in each 10-year age group.

Series Awards

We will recognize outstanding performances throughout the series at the series end “party” after May 23rd. Awards and recognition will be given to, but not limited to the following categories:

** Runners earn points each race based on the 3 big categories; 19 & under,  Open, and Masters (40+). We take your 4 best race points to determine the winner of each. 


The Dash & Dine 5k Run series is a family-friendly event and we would like to provide a safe environment for families to participate in many capacities.


You can run with your kiddos on the course, just be forewarned that the course can be a bit bumpy on the dirt dam roads. Our races are chip timed so please seed yourself accordingly at the start line as not to impede other runners and because the out-and-back course is somewhat narrow at times we just ask that you be courteous and aware of other runners on the course.

Dogs and Animals

While dogs are allowed at the reservoir in the off-season, we would prefer that you not race with your canine because the out-and-back course is somewhat narrow, and we would like to be courteous to all runners. Dogs are not allowed in the Reservoir after May 15.

Service animals as defined by the ADA do not fall within this restriction.

BolderBOULDER Qualifier

Each race can be used to qualify for a wave at the BOLDERBoulder 10K.

Just show your results from the race, or even a screenshot of your Strava activity when registering.
