Stroll on State's Dasher Dash 5K

Overview
Additional Information

To mark the 5th anniversary of Stroll on State, the Rockford Area Convention & Visitors Bureau and Fleet Feet Rockford are launching a new tradition for friends and family to take part in during the Thanksgiving weekend – Stroll on State’s Dasher Dash 5K.

The Dasher Dash will begin at 8 a.m. on the morning of Stroll on State. The route will take runners through an all new certified course. Starting at the UW Health Sports Factory, the race then moves through historic parts of downtown and southwest Rockford, including four bridge crossings, Haight Village and the lovely grounds of Tinker Swiss Cottage Museum & Gardens. Runners won’t want to spend too much time sightseeing though, because once they cross the finish line on Grove Street hot chocolate and Christmas cookies will be waiting.

The course was created with all skill levels in mind; awards for overall and age group winners as well as finisher medals will be provided. Participants also receive a race T-shirt with their registration.
