A pre-dash social for registration will take place at Happier Camper, 2pm-4pm. In order to maintain your prime physique for the 500 metres of vigorous exercise pre-dash nourishment and nutrient rich hot chocolate will be served while you register.

The first 250 to register will receive gold wings to assist them with the obstacles.

Wear mutlukks, heels, snowsuits, wigs or toques or any other equipment you require to sustain the rigors of this .5k dash.

This is an inclusive event celebrating diversity and intended for all ages.
