Description

Welcome to our 8th Annual Hero Dash Fest


Last year's Treasure Hunt was a huge success, so we will be bringing it back for another year.


Treasure Hunt Details:



  • This is a great event for runners looking to mix it up, friends to get together, and families with small children looking for fun activities.

  • We have five trails totaling roughly seven miles of distance. 

  • On each trail, we are hiding boxes of treasure to find. Each person can then take one piece of treasure from the box. Detail will be provided ahead of time to help you locate it. 

  • Those who find all of the treasure will receive a prize.

  • To work around busy schedules and naptimes, you are free to participate in the Treasure Hunt at any point between 10:00 a.m. through 4:00 p.m. 

  • Absolutely no requirement to hike all of the trails. Hike at your leisure.

  • This event is by donation only. No set fee to sign up.
