The purpose of the Railroad Days Dash is to get people in the Staples area active by running. Founding Race Director Nick Schultz started the race in 2009. Staples has a long history of great cross country runners and track teams so they asked why not have a running event that promotes running as a healthy LIFESTYLE.
The event also includes the Jr. Dash for kids under 12. The Jr. Dashers will run the 1K course alongside members of the Staples-Motley Cross Country team.
All proceeds from the Railroad Days Dash benefit Kinship Partners of Staples/Motley, a non-profit youth mentoring program.
