The Monster Dash races consist of a 1-mile Fun Run, followed by the 5K and 10K runs. The race course for all three runs follows the perimeter of Lithia Park, a beautiful 93 acre park in downtown Ashland, Oregon. Southern Oregon is fast becoming one of the premiere running destinations of the Northwest; and Ashland, specifically, has been identified by Running Times magazine as the ultra-distance running mecca of the U. S. and Outside magazine named Ashland the “Best Town in America for Trail Running.”

All races are out and back courses that begin/end just above the intersection of Nutley and Winburn Way in Lithia Park. The out and back course will allow you to see other runners’ costumes…and for them to see yours! See individual race course descriptions below.
