This is a great place to tell your story and give people more insight into who you are, what you do, and why it’s all about you.

Join us for the Inaugural DASH Around Kampeska, a running tour of beautiful Lake Kampeska located in Watertown, SD.  This scenic half marathon will take you on a trip around the lake with trails running through Jackson Park and Memorial Park, ending on the waterfront boardwalk at Stokes- Thomas City Park. This scenic course is a complete loop around Lake Kampeska and is mostly flat with some rolling hills through the park areas.  If the 13.1 is too much, join us for a 2 person 1/2 Marathon Relay that splits these miles in half.  Make this a family weekend getaway; come Friday night, run the Buffalo Wild Wings 5k, visit one of our unique restaurants, and spend the night in one of our great hotels.  Wake up early on Saturday morning for our DASH Around Kampeska!  Spend the rest of the day Saturday visiting some of Watertown, SD greatest attractions such as the beautiful Terry Redlin Art museum, Bramble Park Zoo, and downtown Watertown area.

Watertown DASH is an acronym for Drug Free, Alcohol-Free, Safe & Healthy, and the mission is “To challenge community partnerships to lead by example and to empower Watertown youth to choose to live healthy and positive lifestyles.”  Kids learn by the examples and expectations set for them. On a national level, a social norm of “kids will be kids” has developed when it comes to alcohol and drug use, as if it is a “rite of passage.”  This program was created by the Watertown Police Department and volunteers from the Watertown community in 2012 to stop that trend.  In the past 7 years, Watertown DASH has hosted or sponsored approximately 60 safe and healthy family events, awarded 7 recipients with a $500 scholarship, has had close to 5,000 total participants attend the events, and awarded participants with approximately 1,700 medals!  No greater good can be done than helping a child live a safe and healthy life. Watertown DASH is 100% funded by community partners and donations are placed in a police fund that was established at the Watertown Community Foundation.

Please contact us at 605-882-5238 if you have any questions or would like to hear more about the program. You can also “like” us on Facebook at Watertown DASH. Please mail donations to:
