Longwood Monster Dash

Sat October 26, 2024 Directions


What group do I start with?

We start in three waves. We will announce runners to move to the starting line, followed by joggers, and then walkers. Your time in the results starts when you individually cross the start line. So don't worry about it impacting your time!

8:00 - Wave A - Sub 30 Minute (runners)
8:01 - Wave B - 30:00 to 45:00 (joggers)
8:02 - Wave C - 45:00 and over (walkers)

What is the Kid's Dash?

The little ones (12 & under) can participate in the free kid's dash. It will start 15 minutes before the 5K. The run is a simple out-and-back going out one block, then turning around and coming back. It is a little over a tenth of a mile. Even the smallest can do it!

The kids will get a "Fun Run" ribbon, candy, and other goodies. They will be awarded as the kids cross the finish line.

Will participants get shirts?

Yes. Every registered 5K participant will get a dry-fit shirt.

Will there be medals?

The top three overall men and women will receive a plaque and gift certificate. The top three in each age group will receive a medal. Our age groups are 12 & Under, 13-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70+.

Each child will receive a "Fun Run" ribbon for the free kid's dash. They will get these as soon as they cross the finish line.

When is the awards ceremony?

The awards ceremony will be held at 9:15 AM after the walkers finish. We will start with the costume awards, then overall, and finally, age group awards. Results are posted live, so you can find out where you finished. If you need to leave early, we can give you your medal based on live results at 9 AM. We will not ship awards.

Finish place is based on NET TIME (when you cross the start and finish), not necessarily the order of finish. We will start the races in waves, so runners in other waves may beat your time.

Will there be a photographer?

We will have a race photographer there taking start and finish photos, awards, and other candids. They'll be posted on this site under the Photos link between 24-48 hours after the race's conclusion.

Where will I find race results?

Results will be posted live on this site under the Results link.

Can I bring my pet?

Feel free to bring your friendly furry ones along on a leash. Bonus points if they have a costume that is themed to match yours. We'll give out awards for the best pets in costume.

You must pick up after any mess or you'll be asked to leave.

Can I push my kid in a stroller?

Of course! We love seeing families with little ones. Just don't run over anybody, okay? :-)
