We’re capping the event at 800 participants so act fast to secure your registration!
The race takes place on Friday evening to allow you and your families to participate in post-race festivities. Hang around after to enjoy FREE music, game booths & activities, and an outdoor movie. Plus there’s a beer garden featuring Redmond’s craft brewers!
The start/finish line is located behind Redmond’s City Hall. Competitive racers will find a 5km course that is flat, fast, and USATF certified.

The participant registration fee is between $8-$35 depending on the participant’s age and date of registration (see registration section above). All of the Dash's net proceeds support the mission of the non-profit Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. Among the major cancer killers, pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate and receives the least amount of research funding.
Dr. John K. McCormick Foundation
The Dash is organized by the Dr. John K. McCormick Foundation in partnership with the City of Redmond. John, a 22-year resident of Redmond, WA, lost his battle to pancreatic cancer in 2007. John practiced sports medicine in the Redmond community for over two decades while raising a family with his wife, Ann. Golfer, runner, avid student of everything (i.e. ukulele, banjo, Spanish, astronomy), John was greatly loved by his wife, Ann, 4 children--Kinsey, Kerry, Johnny, Meghan--and his extended family and friends.
The foundation's overarching goals are to turn John McCormick's tragic loss to pancreatic cancer into an opportunity to stage an enriching community event while also raising awareness and funds towards a cure for pancreatic cancer.
