Dickerson Dash 2020

Zombie Run Flyer

This year’s Dickerson Dash 5K will be held Friday, March 13, at 7:45 pm.  

This year’s theme is Zombie Run.  Runners can expect to be splashed with red color powder along the race and can even purchase red color packets to throw on themselves or friends.  Watch out!  There may be some zombie sightings along the race course too!  Community sponsors will have tents set up on campus and may have swag and coupons to pick up.  Participants may choose to dress as a human or a zombie!  


(The color powders are high quality and safe.  All FDA food grade and biodegradable ingredients are used. The powders are certified cosmetics in Europe (safe for skin), certified non-dust explosive in the USA and Europe, and safe for the environment.)
