Monster Dash 5K

Monster Dash 5K Fundraiser is a timed 5K and Little Monster Fun Run. Runners are encouraged to dress in costume and local businesses are offering prizes for the best in several different categories! The event will take place on the Square in Polk City and directly benefits families affected by breast cancer in the North Polk community.

Come out to run or to enjoy live local music, local food and entertainment on the square!

Registration gets you a free shirt, chip timing and a big donation to the friends and families near and dear to our heart. Sign up at before race day for a $10 discount!

Little Monster Fun Run available for children age 12 and under.

Sign up your family or team for registration discounts and better chances at the costume contest!

The purpose of this event is to raise funds for families in the North Polk area that have been affected by Breast Cancer. Instead of donating the funds raised to a charity or non-profit, the funds will be distributed straight to the families.
