2017 "Rain Date" Announced
Severe thunderstorms on April 29 caused us to cancel the Dogwood Dash for the first time in the event's history. After considering multiple options and logistical challenges of each, a reschedule date was not feasible, so we are running a "virtual" dash in its place. Participants can complete a 5K race on their own, any time between May 8 (noon) through June 1, and submit their own results to us on the honor system. Click here for additional details.
On your mark, Get set, Go!
Whether you are a first time 5K participant or a seasoned veteran, you are invited to the Boone County Arboretum in the spring to take part in our annual Dogwood Dash 5K Run and Walk. This fun event is held each April as the dogwood blooms are coming out of their long winter nap. All proceeds benefit the Friends of Boone County Arboretum to continually improve the arboretum grounds and educational opportunities. Dust off your running shoes and get ready for this scenic spring–time race!
