6-week training schedule

Welcome to our 6-week training plan! Meet up with Monster Dash team members for fun and easy runs, culminating in a full 5k! It's a great way to ease into running, and we're a really fun group! We'll talk about shoes, hydration, nutrition, and setting running goals.

Meet every Monday night (rain or shine!) in Lincoln Park's South parking lot at 6:30 pm. Looking forward to meeting and running with you!

The Monster is Resting...

What an amazing year!

Trish and I would like to send a big THANK YOU to all of our volunteers and planning team members - your effort really shone through! Also, my deepest heartfelt thanks to all of our Co-Op Teachers and Parent Educators. You make an incredible impact on the lives of so many people, both big and small. It's an honor and a privilege to have so many of you come out and support our race.

The Monster Dash planning team is going on hiatus until this Spring, when we'll be soliciting new members to work on 2014's race. If you need to get in touch with us prior to that, post a comment to this (or any) post, and it will send a notification to our race director, Milyssa. She'll get back to you, hopefully sooner rather than later.

Have an awesome year!

Milyssa and Trish
