Dinosaur Dash at the MSU Museum (October 2017)

October 1, 2017. 10:00 am - 12:00 pm.

This event is for all ages:

The fast, flat 5K road race is a fall-time favorite and a long-time benefit for the Michigan State University Museum educational programs. A full line-up of activities make for dinosaur-size fun and fitness for the whole family.

The competitive 5K run/walk begins and ends near the MSU Museum on West Circle Drive. Dashers compete in several different divisions and dinosaur trophies are awarded to overall male and female winners in both the running and walking categories. Three special runs are designed for the younger crowd: the Museum Mile for youths 12 and under, to run or walk a one-mile loop around north campus; the Mini-Dash, a 200 yard dash for kids 6 and under; and the Diaper Dash, a 100 yard dash for kids 3 and under. All youth participants receive an official Dinosaur Dash award medal.
