During this crazy time, a lot of things have had to change. However, this change is in favor of the people, and although it’s brought hardships and a great deal of stress, we have to keep each other safe. Every year there are all kinds of things to do in Orange County, especially ones with running. The Dino Dash, for example, holds a 5K race every year. This year is their 30th anniversary, but given the guidelines we have to follow, the race is being postponed until November 7, 2021. Although the postponement will come as sad news, the Dino Dash has been transformed into a virtual race event called Dino Detour. The Dino Detour will keep everyone safe during the ongoing pandemic and keep the community active and still support the local schools.
Although the race will be conducted virtually, you can drive by and pick up a swag bag that will include a special day Detour medal and a t-shirt, as well as offerings from the race sponsors.
Steps To Follow For The Event:
- Register for the Dino Detour Virtual 5K
