Diamond Dash Race Description

 

The 5th year for the Diamond Dash will offer a 10k run, 6k run & 5k walk. The race will start/finish in the Hollidaysburg Diamond. This race is sure to be fun for the whole family.

 

REGISTRATION:

 

PLEASE REGISTER EARLY as t-shirts will only be guaranteed to the first 350 registered racers. We offer pre-registration discounts for all registrants prior to race day (see box above). Day of race registration is available from 6:30am to 7:40am in the Diamond in front of First National Bank. Online registration closes at 11:00am on Friday, May 15.

 

Racers must wear race number to show that you are a race participant. You will have a certain color bib pertaining to what race you are participating in.  If you want to change races, you may do so by calling the Blair Regional YMCA at 695-4467 before race day. NO CHANGES ON RACE DAY! If you lose your bib or need a new one issued, for any reason, there will be a $5 fee assessed. For safety reasons, headsets of any kind and pets are not permitted.

 

NO race registration reimbursements. Remember, if you cannot make it to the event, your registration fee is going towards a good cause.  

 

COURSE INFORMATION:

 

10K RUN: The 10k course begins in the Diamond and stays in the Borough of Hollidaysburg. The run takes off down Allegheny St and returns on Walnut St through Historic Hollidaysburg and continues around Legion Park, High School, Tiger Stadium, and the Junior High before going up over Union St and turning at the Blair County Courthouse to return to the Diamond, a true tour of the Borough!
6K RUN: Why 6k? 6k is the official distance that women run in NCAA Cross Country and provides another distance to challenge yourself with. This 6k course begins in the Diamond and stays in the Borough of Hollidaysburg. Just like the 10k, the run takes off down Allegheny St and returns on Walnut St through Historic Hollidaysburg and continues around the High School, Tiger Stadium, and the Junior High before going up over Union St and turning at the Blair County Courthouse to return to the Diamond, a unique course to show off the Borough!
5K WALK: The 5k walk begins in the Diamond and stays in the Borough of Hollidaysburg. The walk takes off down Allegheny St and returns on Walnut St through Historic Hollidaysburg and continues around High School and Tiger Stadium before going up over Union St and turning at the Blair County Courthouse to return to the Diamond, a true walking tour of the Borough!

 

RACE PACKET PICK-UP:

 

Race packets will be available for pick up beginning the Thursday before race day at the Blair Regional YMCA. You may also pick-up your packet on race day, from 6:30 to 7:45am, in front of First National Bank on the Diamond in Hollidaysburg.

Nice early 8:00 am start, temps were cool. Perfect for running. A couple of challenging grades at the beginning and end. Field was thin but the race was well organized. Good tunes and snacks afterward. Had a great time.
