** Please note we use Active.com for our registration system. DASH Around Kampeska and the event organizer are in no way associated with the "Get $10 Off This Event" promotion. If you click on that offer, please make sure you are reading the fine print, as you are signing up for a program called Active Advantage and you will see additional charges on your credit card in the future. DASH Around Kampeska committee and the event organizer are not responsible for any charges relating to Active Advantage.

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 a running tour of Beautiful Lake Kampeska located in Watertown, SD! This scenic Half Marathon will take you on a trip around Lake Kampeska with trails running through Jackson Park, Memorial Park and ending on the waterfront boardwalk at Stokes-Thomas City Park. If the 13.1 mile run is too much, join us for a 2 person Half Marathon Relay that splits these miles in half.

 

Make this a family weekend! Come Friday night, run or walk the Buffalo Wild Wings 5k, visit one of our unique restaurants and spend the night in one of our great hotels. Then get up early on Saturday morning for our DASH Around Kampeska Half Marathon. Spend the rest of the day Saturday visiting some of Watertown, SD greatest attractions. We have so much for a family to see and do. Visit the beautiful Terry Redlin Art Center, Bramble Park Zoo, and our downtown Watertown area.

Proceeds from this race will benefit Watertown D.A.S.H. - a program at our local Police Department that hosts annual events that promote family time and empower youth to choose to live Drug Free, Alcohol Free, Safe & Healthy 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.  The idea of creating something that could help teach our local youth to choose to live a drug free, alcohol free, safe and healthy lifestyle was just an idea in 2012.  However, that idea turned into a great program that has been going strong for years.  Watertown DASH has made a difference in the lives of local youth and their families.  Watertown DASH has hosted or sponsored events such as the Freedom Run 5K/Walk, Watertown Area Fun Run, $500 DASH Scholarship, Turkey DASH 5K/Walk, Spring into Action 5K/Walk, DARE Celebration for 5th grade graduates at the end of the school year, Teen Police Academy, FOP Kids Triathlon, Color with a Cop, and Read with a Cop.  No greater good can be done than helping a child live a safe and healthy life.  Watertown DASH is 100% funded by the Watertown community at the Watertown Community Foundation.  If you have any questions or would like to hear more about the program, you can “like” Watertown DASH on Facebook or check out the PD website under programs at www.watertownpd.com.
