April 20 Dough Dash 5K Run/Fun Walk still accepting participants

It’s not too late to sign up for the April 20 Dough Dash 5K Run/Fun Walk to take place at Pellissippi State Community College’s Blount County Campus. Those who register by April 6 pay $20 per participant, and those who register after that date up until event day pay $25.

The Alumni Association-hosted 5K run/fun walk serves as a fundraiser for the Pellissippi State Foundation’s General Scholarship Fund.

Dough Dash provides the opportunity for participants to run a 5K course or walk up to one mile. Medallions will be awarded in the categories of Male/Female Top Three Overall, Male/Female Top Master and Grandmaster, and Three Deep Male/Female in various age groups.

The event is part of the Run and See Tennessee Grand Prix, which encourages runners to compete in races throughout Tennessee and bordering states.

The event begins at Pellissippi State’s Blount County Campus. The 5K and fun walk courses consist of an on-campus asphalt trail, and the 5K continues on scenic off-campus back roads. The run and walk end on the campus, which is located at 2731 W. Lamar Alexander Pkwy. in Friendsville.

Dough Dash begins at 8 a.m., and on-site registration is 7-7:30 a.m. No refunds will be given.
