About This Activity


The second annual Heroes and Villains Dash is a 5K / 10K run is Saturday, October 3, 2015 along the Hudson River Park.  Dress up and run with other caped crusaders and villains!  This timed race and run is for all fitness levels.   We stand for two things.  Having a great time, and giving back to the community.  A portion of all profits will be donated to the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center on behalf of a good friend and cancer survivor, Holly Lynch.   Each runner will receive a race bag (no shirts this time…sport your costume), a medal and, can choose to grab a beer with us to celebrate.   We’ll have prizes for best dressed individuals and teams! After the run we’ll meet up for an after run party for a beer at a local bar / biergarten    (location to be determined).

This run is as casual or as competitive as you’d like to make it.
