Will Run for Food

Tonight's Dash & Dine 5K is not to be confused with the "dine and dash," a method of eating dinner for free if you can outrun restaurant security. For one thing, the Dash & Dine is not illegal; for another, it doesn't involve racing on a full stomach, which is never a good idea.

Instead, racers will dash first, making their way along the flat, packed-dirt trail around Boulder's Coot Lake. At the finish line, they'll collect their prizes — an assortment of goodies and gift certificates from local businesses and national sponsor Salomon — and load their paper plates with cookout fare: hamburgers, veggie burgers, hot dogs, chips, potato salad and soda.

The race starts at 6:30 p.m. and costs $12 in advance, $15 at the event; the cookout begins at 7:15. The Dash & Dine is also a Bolder Boulder qualifier; if you can't make tonight's race, you can try again any Tuesday evening through May 17. Visit for more information.
Tue., April 18, 6:30 p.m.
