Race Preview: 2018 Dionysus Dash 5k (Dayton)

Vineyards, wine, and running. All of these things go together, right? If you’re doing the 2018 Dionysus Dash on July 21st, they do. This 5k run/walk begins at Winter’s Hill Winery in Dayton  and it’s going to be fun!!

Dionysus was the “Greek God of Wine” and it’s only fair that we do our part to celebrate this. The race is for all levels and speeds, and if you like wine, all the better. About 70% of runners wear costumes for this race, so get out your best Greek head pieces and dust off that toga from the closet and come on out and run in it!

This race is a trail run, so you should be prepared to face the terrain and get a bit dirty. The run will be timed, but it is a Fun Run and it will not be a certified race. Timing results are on the RFID system which is only about 90% accurate, and there will be no refunds on the timing tags not read.

Your registration for this race includes a stemless wine glass and a t-shirt (first come, first serve on sizes, and it’s suggested you order up a size as if you are getting a women’s shirt, as they are fitted and run small.) You’ll also get some wine tastings and some other goodies, so this race will be well worth the journey.

There will be wine tastings immediately following the race, so head on over after crossing the finish line and have a good time. There will also be music and awards for runners that are 21 and over. You can hang out at the winery after you complete the race, though the event concludes at 11:00AM. Please don’t bring any outside alcohol in and enjoy the day out in Wine Country!
