2017 Race Results Posted

Dashers Who Won or Placed May Pick Up Their Prize at the Museum

On your mark, get set … go! Lace up your running shoes for the Virginia Discovery Museum’s annual Discovery Dash, Virginia’s oldest kids’ track race! Each Spring, the Dash welcomes families for a morning of fun, fitness, and races for kids ages 3 to 12, including quarter-mile, half-mile, and mile runs; a sibling race; parent-child relays; a community-wide school relay; and even a toddler scramble for the littlest ones. In addition to promoting children’s health and wellness, the Dash is the Museum’s largest annual fundraising event.

Thank you to the more than 300 runners who braved the rain and joined us at Monticello High School for the 27th Annual Discovery Dash, and congratulations to Brownsville Elementary School for taking home the Discovery Cup in the school relay! First to third place, boys and girls, for every age receive a prize; if you have not yet received your prize, please stop by the Museum to pick it up. First place receives a trophy, second place receives a Ragged Mountain Running Shop drawstring backpack, and third place receives a Virginia Discovery Museum color-changing cup.
