Virtual Race Option: Anywhere! It’s virtual!

Annually, the Dayton Dragons host one of the biggest timed, 5K races in the Miami Valley with over 2,000 participants. So, we’re excited to share the great news that “THE RACE THAT PAYS YOU” is back with options to participate in-person and virtual (whatever you are most comfortable with for 2021) . With $100 worth of swag included with your entry… you don’t want to miss out on this awesome event!

Due to the continued impact of COVID-19, the Dragons 5K will continue offering a virtual option for those that prefer that method for 2021. What this means is that you can register for the race, then run, walk, or hike your own Dragons 5K in your neighborhood, on a treadmill or at a local park, and then simply input your time online by July 24, 2021. You will still receive your swag bag of items including the 5K t-shirt, medal, and Dragons hat (we will email all participants with a link to select Dragons tickets for the 2021 season after the race date of July 24, 2021).
