The Sept. 27 Dogfish Dash 5K/10K road race, which will benefit The Nature Conservancy, will take place at Dogfish's main brewery, at Cannery Village in Milton.

Dogfish Head Craft Brewery announces the fourth annual Dogfish Dash, a slightly off-centered 5K/10K out-and-back road race to benefit The Nature Conservancy. 

This year’s race kicks off at 8 a.m. on Sept. 27, at Dogfish Head Craft Brewery (#6 Cannery Village Center) in Milton.  Dogfish Head is proud to partner with Seashore Striders Event Production for the Dogfish Dash. The Striders’ Tim Bamforth is the race director for the run.

Runners will have the opportunity to enjoy all new courses through and around historic Milton, followed by a great after-race party at the brewery.  The after-race party includes delicious food, Dogfish beer, brewery tours, entertainment, great give-aways, and the inaugural “keg sprint” race. 

New this year, runners must register online, there will be no race-day registration and race registration will close at 1,000 runners. For detailed race information and to register visit

Dogfish’s off-centered awards will be presented to Overall Champions, Overall Masters and the top three finishers in nine age categories.

Packet Pick-up will take place Saturday evening from 4-7 p.m. at Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats (320 Rehoboth Ave.) in Rehoboth or Sunday morning before the race at the Milton brewery (plan to arrive early).

Proceeds from the 2009 Dogfish Dash will benefit the Delaware Chapter of The Nature Conservancy; a non-profit organization working to preserve the plants, animals, and natural communities that represent the diversity of life on Earth by protecting the lands and waters they need to survive. Participation in the Dogfish Dash will directly help the Delaware Chapter, and their efforts to "preserve a natural Delaware for future generations."
