The Mad Dash Race
Monday, September 1, 2014, 8:30 am
The Mad Dash Race is an annual charity race, founded in 1988 and sponsored by the Church of the Messiah in Rhinebeck, NY. 100% of the proceeds go to support local charities. There are 5k and 10k races, and a 5k walk over rolling hills and beautiful scenery on a paved road. There are also mini-dashes for the kids. Chronotrack disposable timers are used for all 5 and 10K runners and walkers.After 25 successful years, the Mad Dash Race has become a Rhinebeck Labor Day tradition. The proceeds from the Mad Dash have helped fund countless local charitable organizations such as The Messiah Food Pantry, multiple homeless shelters, AIDS related community services, WIC, Community Coalition for Rhinebeck Youth, Dutchess County SPCA and many more. Last year, the Mad Dash hosted over 700 runners and walkers of all kinds and raised over $14K!
