Diamond Dash September 24th

Diamond Dash 10th Anniversary

The 10th annual Diamond Dash will occur on September 24th 2016. The event, sponsored by the Town of Glovertown and The Fry Family Foundation takes place on the beautiful Ken Diamond Memorial Park trail just behind the Glovertown Arena.  Runners of all ages can participate in events ranging from the 250 and 500 meter “Small Fry Runs”, to the 1.8, 3.8, or 5.4 kilometer runs for older runners.

Event organizers are hoping this year’s anniversary event will be bigger and better than ever with plenty of great prizes, and fun events for the younger runners and spectators.  On -Line Registration begins on September 5, 2016.
