Discovery Dash

Virginia’s Oldest Kids Track Race

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Virginia Discovery Museum's annual Discovery Dash will not take place in May 2021. Every May, families lace up their running shoes for the Dash, a proud partner of Ragged Mountain Running Shop’s Kid’s Triple Crown nonprofit race series. Families enjoy a morning of fun and fitness, including a 50-yard toddler scramble and quarter-mile, half-mile, and mile runs for children 3 to 12; a sibling race for ages 5 to 14; parent-child relays; and a community-wide school relay. The Discovery Dash is one of the Museum’s major annual fundraising events, and proceeds support educational programs and camps, exhibit creation, and the Sponsored Admission Program.
