The Discovery Dash
May 23rd will be the 19th annual Discovery Dash at Monticello High School's track! Be sure to register your child today! Come by the Museum to pick up a registration form. Call Brett at 434-977-1025 x4 with questions.
"What is the Dash?" you ask. Well, the Discovery Dash is a series of races for kids ages 3-12 and their families. It started 19 years ago with a small group of runners on the downtown mall and has since grown to over 400 runners! The Monticello High School Track is now home to the Dash which welcomes over 1000 attendees. It's quite the event!
As well as the individual races, there is also the Discovery Cup School Relay. This event is very popular among the schools of Charlottesville and surrounding areas. The teams are made up of 4 students (6, 7, 8, and 9 years old) that run 1/4 mile each. The winning team takes home the coveted Discovery Cup and $200 for their school to use on new sporting equipment! The second and third place teams receive $100 and $50 prizes respectively. We hope to see you there!
