Race Details:

The Dash to the Dam is a mostly paved trail race on the West River Trail in Townshend, VT. The race begins at a trailhead off route 30 and finishes at the Townshend Dam Rec Area, where there will be snacks, prizes and pumpkin painting. Runners are encouraged to wear costumes; a panel of judges from Leland & Gray Middle/High School will be awarding prizes to spookiest, funniest and most creative costumes! The race will begin promptly at 9am and festivities should be concluded by about 11am.

The cost to run is $20 for adults and $15 for kids under 15. Day of registrations are the same prices, but we encourage you to sign up in advance, as it makes our lives a lot easier!

On race day, runners should arrive at the Townshend Dam Recreation Area (Route 30 in Townshend) by 8:30am to pickup bibs and take the bus to the start. The race is a point to point and all parking is a the finish. Runners may have a friend or family member drop them at the start after picking up their bib. 

This race is put on by West River Valley Thrives, a substance abuse prevention coalition based in Townshend. This year, all funds raised will be given to the Leland & Gray Girls on the Run program, to offset the girls' participation fees. Additional donations will be accepted that day!
