UR Fitness Center's Department Dash


The event will be held Thursday June 11, 2020. This 5k run / 1.5 mile walk was created to promote team building within departments and the UR as a whole. 

We had 597 participants for our first event - amazing! We hope to see you all again this year.

The event will culminate with a fun post-race picnic! There will be lawn games, music and a water sprinkler area (if hot). Also, each participant in attendance will have a chance to win one of the many donated raffle prizes (dinner, skiing, movies, golf, wine, etc.).

*Please note that this event is only open to UR staff, faculty & students. We are making this an adult-only fun work event - therefore children, families and pets will not be allowed. We thank you for your understanding. Volunteer opportunities are open to spouses and children over 16. *Please contact us for more volunteer information.

New for 2020 - the Fitness Center will host its own FUN DAY at ROSELAND Water Park on Saturday June 27. Any race participant and their immediate family (spouses & children) can have fun all day at the park for only $21.50 roseland-flier
