Recycled Costume Contest
Not going for a PR at the Dash? Don’t worry … you still have an opportunity at fame and glory (and some sweet prizes)! Come out and run in your most creative costume made of recycled stuff and you might just win. Prizes awarded for top three teams, top male individual and top female individual.
Oh yeah ... and please be tasteful in your costume creation. Thanks!

The Dogfish Dash is happy to team up with the MORE Foundation in 2019. 
MORE Foundation Group is 100% funded by gently used athletic shoes. Instead of decomposing in landfills for 100 years, the donated shoes are sold to participating street vendors in developing countries. This creates retail jobs while stimulating free enterprise. With the proceeds, MORE plants carbon grounding trees and teaches sustainable agro-forestry.
Bring your still serviceable old running shoes to the Dogfish Dash Packet Pick Ups for recycling and MORE Foundation will donate a $1 per pair to The Nature Conservancy, DE Chapter.
