More Information

First and foremost, deciding to switch the DASH over to a virtual event was one of the hardest decisions this Mission has ever had to make. With that said, we are excited to announce we have an amazing virtual option for all runners and walkers, as well as a new distance option! Check out what we have to offer!

The beautiful part of this DASH is it can be done anywhere you would like, and at any time of day you would like! The Virtual Run can be completed in your own neighborhood, at a local park, or even the treadmill. Sign up and encourage friends, family, and strangers alike to participate in the best DASH in Virginia!

When you move your feet, others can eat, it’s as simple as that.

Everyone looks forward to getting out on Thanksgiving morning to walk, run, and work off all those calories you’re undoubtedly going to bring in later in the day. Making the trek from your house to the race site, finding parking, standing shoulder to shoulder with others, then racing back home to get ready can be tough, but not this year!

This is where the 2020 Atlantic Union Bank Drumstick DASH comes in! The Drumstick DASH is a month long Virtual Run that you can do anytime, anywhere between November 1st – 30th. Walk your 5K or run the 5k or 8k on your own accord and receive all the awesome race swag you'd expect from a traditional race! (It’s actually even better this year!) 

The Atlantic Union Drumstick DASH will be as comforting as the smell of your kitchen on Thanksgiving morning! If your kitchen smells like burning, then think of your zen place, it’s like that.

You can run, walk, skip, or jog the 3.1 miles anytime between November 1-30. The best part of this is you can choose the best day to run. Beautiful weather? Run that day. Like walking in the rain? Do your thing.

You can do this anywhere you'd like: the neighborhood, local park, treadmill, or anywhere else you may find yourself during Thanksgiving week this year!

After you've rocked your 5 or 8k, you can easily submit your time through the RaceJoy app. We're also super social, so we will want to see any and all pictures you snapped on our Instagram and Facebook page. We will also have an easy way to share your 5K photos to the official race page.
