United Way of Defiance Donut Dash 2019

August 3, 2019 @ 7:30 am - 10:30 am

Thank you to our Donut Dash sponsors- Midwest Community Federal Credit Union and Mercy Health – Defiance!

Join us for a 5K fun run to Oxbow Lake and back OR stroll the 1 mile walk around the airport runway.

Hot air balloons will be flying in as you check-in around 7AM (weather dependent).

Recharge after your run with a cup of coffee or pancakes at the Biggby Best Pancake Breakfast (free-will donation) hosted by our local Boy Scouts. All race registrations will receive a donut from Holey Toledough – Handcrafted Doughnuts!

The 5K is a trail run, so dress appropriately and perhaps some bug spray. The 1 mile walk is around the airport runway on concrete and strollers welcome. Children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult. There will be water at the 5K turn around and the end of the race.

You can also pick up a free PM parking pass from the United Way tent at the time morning admission is paid.
