2022 Discovery Dash 5k/10k/1-Mile Fun Run

Sep 17th, 2022 @ 7:30 am - 11:00 am

Looking to walk/run the most unusual course in the world? You’ll discover it at Discovery Park of America.

The route meanders through a 50-acre heritage park that features a man-made river flowing through the extensively landscaped property, along with waterfalls, bridges and other water features. No place else can you dash by a 120-year-old church, an 1800s frontier settlement, a reproduction of a town from the early 19th Century and a complete vintage train station.

New this year is a 1-mile Fun Run.

From dynamic race day check-in and pre-race entertainment to the dramatic inflatable archway finish line, finisher’s certificates and winner’s medals, you won’t want to miss a moment.

Stick around after the event and explore the 100,000-square-foot museum and enjoy Pediatric Day 2022. Children 17 and under receive free admission on this day thanks to Pediatric Place of Union City.
