CAMANO CRAB DASH: An ALL AGES EVENT to benefit the Camano Center
Walk, run, scamper... come kick off the summer with the sixth annual Camano Crab
Dash 5K run/walk and 10K run starting at the Camano Center at 606 Arrowhead Road.
This family event is pet and stroller friendly and offers a moderate 5K that
participants can run or walk and a challenging 10K run. Last year, participants
ranged from 6 years old to 80 years old with even younger children riding in
strollers. Medals are awarded for the top three female and male runners and ribbons
are awarded for the top three finishers in EACH age group! Stay for the celebration
after the race at the Camano Center with refreshments and awards. Packet pick-up
and "day of" registration starts at 7:30 AM with a DJ, muffins and coffee while you
wait for the race to start at 9 AM.
The Camano Center is a non-profit community center that operates entirely from
fundraisers, donations, membership and the proceeds from the 2nd Chance Thrift Shop.
