A B O U T
The Arctic Dash was born out of a desire from the YMCA Camp Kern team to bring obstacle and mud running to the area and to use Camp Kern for an event that was truly unique in its history. We want to show off our beautiful 485 acres and what better way than to have people race through it!
The Arctic Dash raises money for our Annual 'Strong Kids' Campaign, which provides scholarships to allow kids, whose families otherwise may not be able to afford it, to have that magical summer camp experience.
YMCA Camp Kern is a place for families, and we encourage you to bring your kids to the event. (Free mini mud dash for the little ones!) Warm water hose-offs and showers are available for all dashers, as well as weekend cabin rentals.
The event is also a proud sponsor of 'Toys for Tots' and we encourage all runners, sponsors, volunteers and spectators to bring a new, unwrapped toy to the event, to help local kids have a magical holiday.
