The Art Dash has established itself in the northwest running scene. This half-marathon, 10k and 5K will take place on Saturday, July 26th, 2014.The Art Dash is a partnership between the Festival and City of Anacortes Parks & Recreation, with proceeds benefiting public art.
The run starts at City Hall, follows the scenic Tommy Thompson Trail, and ends back at Arts at Port of Anacortes Transit Shed.
It has become a tradition for Art Dash runners to be welcomed at the finish line by drumming. Drummers from Shidaa led by Michael McLaskey and Joe Horsak are on hand to encourage and entertain participants outside the Port warehouse.
