The Duckling Dash is our shorter length obstacle-style course. It is approximately one mile long and includes several obstacles which appear in the Muddy Duck Dash 5K. The Duckling Dash is offered primarily as an event for our younger participants and includes the 125' bubble water slide and the mud pit. We invite Ducklings eight years or younger to participate in the Duckling Dash but are happy to welcome any age if their ability does not fit our 5K Dash. Parents, guardians, or caregivers are welcome to accompany/shadow the registered child through the Duckling Dash and offer assistance. Parents or guardians accompanying one of our Duckling Dash registrants are not required to register for the Duckling Dash but must complete and sign a race day waiver.

Note to parents or guardians who want to accompany their child, but also run in the 5K event, we suggest registering yourself for one of the 5K waves which allows you to complete your 5K event before the commencement of the Duckling Dash warm-up at 10:45am.

The cost is $25 for the Duckling Dash until July 20, 2021 at 11:59pm EST and then $35 on Packet Pickup or Dash Day. Duckling Dash participants will receive a rubber duck, a race swag item, and a finisher's medal.
