Welcome to the Hospice Dash 5k Run/Walk

Thank you for your interest in the 2016 Niagara Hospice Dash 5K! Now in its eighth year, this family friendly event has quickly become one of the premier 5K races of the fall running season in Western New York. Our course is fast, relatively flat and includes an exciting straight away finish line overlooking Lake Ontario. Join us immediately following the race for food, drinks, and great live music!

Once again, all runners will have the opportunity to run or walk in memory of someone special. Each pre-registered participant will receive a dri-fit running shirt, plus a custom made finisher medal to highlight their accomplishment. The medal will feature the Hospice Dash Logo on the front and the ability to insert the name of the person they ran in memory of on the back.

This year, 750+ runners are expected to participate in our 5K race. Be sure to register early to ensure your spot in this great annual tradition. As in the past, our post-race party will be open to family and friends for a small donation.

Thanks again for supporting Niagara Hospice. I look forward to seeing everyone on race day!
