About This Activity

The Event:

Join us in College Park, MD for the 2nd annual Monster Dash 5K and 1K Trick or Trot presented by Holy Redeemer Home and School Association! The flat, fast, and scenic course starts and finishes at Holy Redeemer School and will take runners along the College Park Trolley Trail and Paint Branch trail to beautiful Lake Artemesia and back. Costumes and accessories are optional, but welcome for all ages!

Overland Timing will be bib-chip timing the 2019 run.

In addition to the chip-timed 5K, we will have a 1K Kids costume fun-run, food, sponsor-hosted booths, and fall activities, such as pumpkin painting. Participants will have the chance to win door prizes from our generous sponsors!

The Charity:

Holy Redeemer School (a 501(c)(3) organization) is a Catholic Parish School that educates more than 250 Pre-Kindergarten through Eighth Grade students from the greater Washington, D.C. area. All profits from the event will benefit the school's Home and School Association (HSA) which raises funds for educational resources that cannot be covered by tuition.  All proceeds from your race registrations and donations go directly toward enhancing educational programs, enrichment materials, events, field trips, and community building events.

This event is the largest fundraiser for our school, providing new and innovative educational opportunities to our students. Please consider registering for this event. In addition, we are accepting pledges in the name of students participating. Your generous donations can be easily made by clicking the DONATE button located at the top of the page. If you are pledging for a particular student or family, please include that information with your donation.

We hope you will join us!
