Cancelled due to the Coronavirus outbreak!

We have had to cancel the Diva Dash 5K & Lil' Princess Girls Run, scheduled for August 2, as we were not been able to get a permit from the city to hold the event, or permission from the shopping center to host the event, in a timely  enough manner to organize and recruit race participants for the event.  We are sorry that we were not able to hold the event.

About the 5K - Participants receive a race shirt, custom bib, and finishers of the 5K receive a large medal.

About the Lil' Princess Girls Run - girls ages 8 and under can participate in this fun run of 50-200 yards based on age. Participants will receive a shirt, custom bib, tiara, and Lil' Princess medal. The Lil' Princess Fun Run starts after the 5K  (approximately 9 am).

About the Virtual 5K - run on your own whenever and wherever works for you and we will mail your shirt, bib, and finisher's medal to you.

Diva Dash Teams - When registering you have the option to create or join a team. This allows you to not only create a fun name for your group and to keep track of which of your friends have signed up but also save on the registration fee if your team has four or more members!  The first team member to sign up clicks on Create a Team and selects the team name.  Then they tell their friends and family members the team name and when they sign up they click on Join a Team and select the team that they were referred to!  Everyone gets the discounted price when they sign up!

Personalized Bibs - Personalized bib deadline is 7/13/20. If registered by this date your bib number will be personalized with your first name!

Shirts cut just for women! The shirts for 2020 are a women's cut shirt, which generally means more fitted in the torso and shorter in the sleeves.
