Railroad Days Dash/Jr Dash 2017

August 26 @ 8:00AM — 10:30AM

The Railroad Days Dash/Jr Dash is a USA Track and Field certified 5K course.

Please support Kinship Partners by participating in the 5k race or cheering your friends on!

There are currently no tickets available for this event, but you can still make a donation.


The purpose of the Railroad Days Dash is to get people in the Staples area active by running. Founding Race Director Nick Schultz started the race in 2009. Staples has a long history of great cross country runners and track teams so they asked why not have a running event that promotes running as a healthy LIFESTYLE.

The event also includes the Jr. Dash for kids under 12. The Jr. Dashers will run the 1K course alongside members of the Staples-Motley Cross Country team.

All proceeds from the Railroad Days Dash benefit Kinship Partners of Staples/Motley, a non-profit youth mentoring program.

The Railroad Days Dash is part of the Railroad Days celebration in Staples.
