Join us for the 2015 Detlef Schrempf St. Patrick’s Day Dash!

Run, Walk, Jog or Crawl! To Celebrate the Arrival of Spring and the Irish in us all! NCE is proud to be a co-sponsor of the Detlef Schrempf Foundation’s annual St. Patrick’s Day Dash on Sunday, March 15th.

It began 31 years ago as a race between bars and as a training event for an Irish Olympian. Now it’s Seattle’s largest single-distance run/walk, jog or crawl where the winners cross the finish before the last person starts. The Dash covers nearly 4 miles of city streets with a 17,000 person ribbon of green.

The St. Patrick’s Day Dash is a family event with something for everyone. There are young athletes racing to be the first across the Finish Line, and the middle-age, former jocks racing to be the first in the beer garden. The Dash is filled with plenty of people who started as kids, dashing down the Viaduct to the Kingdome. They’re still running or walking with Mom or Dad, and are now pushing strollers as part of three generations of St. Patrick’s Day Dash participants. To continue interest by young Dashers, the morning starts with the Leprechaun Lap for wee lads and lassies (10 & under).

The Dash benefits the Detlef Schrempf Foundation in support of Northwest children’s charities. Some of the beneficiaries for 2015 include Camp Fire Puget Sound, Inspire Youth Project, The Healing Center and Seattle Children’s Autism Center.
