Dawg Dash 2012!

A new course and uncertain fall weather didn’t stop nearly 4,000 runners from lining up for the annual Dawg Dash on Sunday, Oct 21. We lucked out with amazing weather—sunshine mixed with crisp fall air—and tremendous enthusiasm for this year’s course. A great group of spirited runners, walkers, dogs and supporters shared the beautiful day on our gorgeous campus. Here are some fun facts/figures from the 27th annual Dawg Dash:

  • 3,762: runners
  • 43: degrees at the start of the 10K
  • 118: kids participated in the Kids Dash
  • 354: photos in our Dawg Dash album
  • 1: years the Dawg Dash finish was in the UW Quad and the Post Dash Bash was held on Red Square

UW President Michael K. Young got the race off on the right foot.


Kids had a blast running alongside Harry!


We look forward to seeing you next year! For all of the latest updates *like* the Dawg Dash page on Facebook!
