Plan to join us at the 32nd annual Dino Dash Ride and Run for Education to enrich education in all TUSD schools.

The 2023 Dino Dash will draw more than 7,500 participants.  There is an event for everyone.  Runners and walkers can enjoy the 2K fun run with family and schools or extend the distance with the 5K or 10K run.  Young cyclists and families will enjoy the closed-course 5K bike ride.  The 15K ride adds a little distance and the 50K takes you up into the Santiago Hills and around the former air base for a scenic ride.  A family-friendly Expo with more than 100 booths and tasty Food Court add to the day.

RUNNERS CIRCLE

IMAGINE HOW IT FEELS TO FINISH THE RACE!

The Runners Circle was established to cover Dinosaur Dash entry fees for TUSD students who would otherwise be financially unable to participate in the event with the rest of their school. When you become a member of the Runners Circle, you will help 20 worthy TUSD students join in the Dinosaur Dash by providing each of them a "runnership" valued at $20 (your total commitment: $400). 

 

IMAGINE WHAT WE CAN DO WITH YOUR HELP.

Last year, generous donations of runnerships helped nearly 500 children join the fun with their friends from school. Imagine what we can do this year with your help!

 

BENEFITS OF RUNNERS CIRCLE MEMBERSHIP

  • Your name on the Runners Circle sign at the 2023 Dino Dash

  • $200 back to the TUSD school and classroom/club/team of your choice.
