Muddy Duck Dash Awards
The winners of all categories will be announced at the DJ booth located in Central Flock immediately after the Duckling Dash at approximately 11:30 am.


Does spirit get your feathers ruffled? Well, get creative flying solo or grab your flock and make some noise! Get noticed! Each year we choose three individual winners and three team winners based on creativity and enthusiasm. For teams, the number of participants is not a factor, we simply look for the team to be unified and energetic!

You can dress up in costume, superhero outfits, your favorite Halloween leftover, a goofy duck outfit, formal attire, something silly you design, or wear an outfit in support of a friend or family member in the brain tumor community. As long as you can safely run the Dash, we encourage you to be creative. No track spikes or heels, however please!

Part of a team? Now that the group is dressed up, don't forget your team nest! Be sure to bring your tent, tables and chairs and decorate your nest to take your spirit to the next level!


Anyone registered for either the full 5k Dash or Duckling Dash can participate in the Duck-o-rating contest!

As part of your Dash registration and either during packet pick up on Friday the 22nd, or on the morning of Dash day, you will receive your yellow rubber duck. You can either get creative and decorate your duck prior to arriving on Dash Day or you can decorate it at the Duck-o-rating tent craft table at the Dash! Don't forget to register your duck for voting and check back at the DJ Booth in Central Flock at approximately 11:30 am to see if you won!


Without you and your flock, our fundraising effors that provide support for the brain tumor community would not be possible! So, to show our appreciation, we award the top three teams with the largest number of total registered participants for the full Dash and Duckling Dash combined. They say the more the merrier, or in this case, the larger the flock the merrier!

Add "FUN" to the Dash and help support our mission of improving the quality of life for brain tumor patients and their families! Total funds raised includes both donations and registration fees.
We recognize the following:

  • Top team fundraising awards recognize the top three teams who raise the most money as tallied at 11:59pm EST, the evening before Dash Day.
  • Top individual fundraising awards recognize the top three individuals who raise the most money as tallied at 11:59pm EST, the evening before Dash Day.
