Responding to a number of requests, the 5K Nutcracker Dash adventure race is being moved from August 17th to October 12th. In a letter posted on the race website late last week, organizer Skip Mezger says that there were too many things going on that weekend of the 17th, so they’re moving the race to make it “more accessible. Mezger also says that they’re joining up with the annual Race against Juvenile Diabetes, adding the 5K adventure race course to the 5K and 10K runs that are planned with that event. Proceeds from the Nutcracker Dash will now be split between the Veterans Service Center, the YMCA summer camp program and the Pioneer Lions diabetes program. Registration and more information is available on the Nutcracker Dash website, at nutcrackerdash.com.
