The Mass Dash is Back for 2015 !
A One-Day 100-Mile Race !!
The Mass Dash is back in 2015, and we've packed all the fun into a new one-day 100-mile race from Mt Greylock to UMass @ Amherst! A team adventure relay race with a very significant purpose, the Mass Dash will bring together hundreds of runners, sharing their time, their thoughts and themselves while racing across western Massachusetts on a summer day, all dedicated to raising awareness and funds to support family, friends and neighbors in the fight against cancer...
Starting after sunrise, teams of 6 runners each ("BIG" teams may have up to 18 runners) will run 100 miles in a non-stop relay race of eighteen legs across western Massachusetts -- from the foot of Mount Greylock, Massachusetts' highest point, to the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Along the way, the teams will run through Massachusetts' beautiful state parks, forests and reservations, its storied colleges and universities, and its many historic and picturesque towns and villages. In four years, over 2000 runners and volunteers have joined in the Mass Dash, and have raised almost $500,000 for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. The experience will leave you absolutely breathless -- in more ways than you can imagine!
