Dogfish Dash 2017

Watch a video from this year's race!


The Nature Conservancy in Delaware’s State Director Richie Jones thanks Dogfish Head, sponsors, runners and volunteers for their contributions to the 2017 Dogfish Dash.

The 12th Annual Dogfish Dash was held on Sunday, September 24, 2017, and marked eleven years of incredible support by Dogfish Head Craft Brewery for The Nature Conservancy in Delaware. This was by far the most successful event yet, raising $145,000 for The Nature Conservancy in Delaware! The Nature Conservancy in Delaware would like to thank everyone at Dogfish Head who helped make the event possible, as well as all of the sponsors, volunteers and runners that also contributed to the incredible outcome!

The Dogfish Dash is a slightly off-centered road race that starts and finishes at the Dogfish Head Craft Brewery in Milton. In addition to the chip-timed race, the Dash includes tasty morsels, live entertainment and Dogfish Head beer. There is also a costume contest with awards for the best “recycled” costume (individual and team).

Since 2007 the Dogfish Dash has generated more than $645,000 for The Nature Conservancy in Delaware!
