In-person race option: Day Air Ballpark (Home of the Dayton Dragons) – 220 Patterson Blvd. Dayton, OH 45402
Virtual race option: Anywhere, USA – it’s virtual!
Annually, the Dayton Dragons host one of the biggest timed, 5K races in the Miami Valley with over 2,000 participants. So, we’re excited to share the great news that “THE RACE THAT PAYS YOU” is back with options to participate in-person and virtual (whatever you are most comfortable with for 2023) . With $75 worth of swag included with your entry…you don’t want to miss out on this awesome event!
The Dragons 5K will continue offering a virtual option for those that prefer that method for 2023. What this means is that you can register for the race, then run, walk, or hike your own Dragons 5K in your neighborhood, on a treadmill or at a local park, and then simply input your time online by July 15, 2023. You will still receive your swag bag of items including the 5K t-shirt, medal, and Dragons hat (we will email all participants with a link to select Dragons tickets for the 2023 season after the race date of July 15, 2023). The deadline has been extended for bonus tickets, and you can now sign up by April 16 and you'll still receive two bonus stadium seats (we will email all participants with a link to select Dragons tickets after the promotional window concludes).
How to Submit Results (If you select the VIRTUAL OPTION)
Results can be submitted now through July 15, 2023. You can submit online by logging into your RunSignUp account. Click here to Submit Results
