April 22, 2024

Due to weather, this event has been canceled.

The Dutch Dash, the new name for Central College’s annual springtime run on campus, is scheduled for 6 p.m. Friday, April 26.  The public is welcome to join this free, fun run or walk of 1.853 miles.

New this year will be photo ops along the route that highlight Central traditions. Runners are encouraged to stop and pose in front of the phone booth, run down Peace Mall like the Lemming Race, enjoy a cookie outside of Central Market for Fresh Cookie Tuesday, have a donut hole and pose in front of the Wheaties signs from Breakfast of Champions and move a box or two outside of Graham representing Move-in Day.

The route will begin and end at A.N. Kuyper Athletics Complex parking lot. Free T-shirts will be given away on a first-come basis. After the race, runners may enjoy a root beer float or drinks at the cash bar available to those 21 and older with a government-issued ID.
