New Course in 2015

Expect a great race, on a great scenic course, lakeside  in the heart of  Ozark Mountain Country……Branson, Missouri. A new development in town prevents us from utilizing our prior course, adjacent to White Water.  Due to the location change, no White Water passes are included  for Dash to the Splash. 

Runners Benefits:

Each runner will receive a special t-shirt,  a runner’s gift bag and a chance to win great door prizes.
