The Dino Dash is a fun and fast 5k or 10k race around the university of Calgary. The race was started by a pair of U of C students in 2004 and has steadily grown to an annual evnet that helps to provide funding for Calgary Dino teams. Proceeds go towards scholarships, competition opportunities, and uniforms.
Both the 5k and 10k Dino Dash courses are flat loops around the university campus. There are no major hills to be aware of and only a few turns. Runners get to run the last bit of their course on the campus track (usually about 300 meters).
