The 12th 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 5, 2017.   This half-marathon, 10k and 5K is a USTAF certified run along the (mostly) flat, beautiful Anacortes waterfront.City of Anacortes Timing this year is being done by NW Endurance Events – look for chip timing in 2018.  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.
