Downtown Dash 5K Run

Mike Melton has brought back one of the great old summertime 5Ks as he resurrects the inconic Downtown Dash 5K, one of the races that was part of the Summer Sizzler Race Series.  But this time the race will actually be held in downtown - downtown Stuart, that is!  The race starts and finishes in Flagler Park, just past the Stuart Feedstore museum and in the shadow of the Roosevelt Bridge.  We're also going to beat the heat by starting Saturday morning at 6:00 AM - yes, that's right - 6:00 AM.  Proceeds from the race will benefit the Major Goldsmith Fund, a charitable fund that benefits veterans and serves only veterans on the Treasure Coast - so it's a great local cause!  Finisher's awards, age group awards every five years from 10 and Under to 80 and Over, and a handful of raffle prizes means that everyone will walk away with something!  Post-race refreshments, two on-course water stops, chip timing start to finish line, and quality cotton/poly blend t-shirts are all included.  Come join us at the crack of dawn and run one of the fastest flattest 5K courses you'll ever find!  You know this will be a quality event because Mike Melton is organizing it!  Enter now at $30 - no extra processing fee assessed - it's a flat $30 until race day, when entry jumps to $40.  Pre-race packet pickup at Fleet Feet Stuart running store from 2 PM until 6 PM on Friday July 20.  Sign up today!
