Q: Where is the event located?
A: For 2021, the 5K race will be virtual and can be run any time between February 1 and February 14, 2021. You may either run on your own 5K course, or on the traditional Dash course through Kessler Park. The Fun Run Parade/Walk will lead the Go Oak Cliff Mardi Gras parade on Sunday, February 14. The parade starts at 4PM at the intersection of Davis and Montclair (in Oak Cliff).
Q: Do I have to run a race to come out to the Dash for the Beads?
A: No you do not. Several of our committee members only run if they are being chased. Cheer on your 5K runner from a distance and come out to the Go Oak Cliff Mardi Gras Parade on February 14 and enjoy the great costumes and people participating in the Dash Parade-Walk.
Q: Is the Dash for the Beads family friendly?
A: Yes it is. We encourage parents to involve their children in the virtual 5K run, and also to participate in the Fun Run Parade/Walk and costume contest that will lead off the Go Oak Cliff Mardi Gras parade. Masks will be required.
