The 13th annual Art Dash has established itself in the northwest running scene. After rave reviews about a date change last year, it will again take place during FESTIVAL weekend, on Saturday, August 4, 2018. This half-marathon, 10k and 5K is a USATF certified run along the (mostly) flat, beautiful Anacortes waterfront. Chip timing is new for this year and will be managed by NW Endurance Events. The run starts at City Hall and ends on the Port Dock, where runners will enjoy our Arts at the Port fine art show, Waterfront Pub & music on the Port Stage. Come for the run and stay for the FUN!
The Art Dash is a partnership between the Festival and City of Anacortes Parks & Recreation, with proceeds funding public art projects.
