We are excited to let you know that the 2017 Monster Dash is not only moving to the Ontario Science Centre, but it’s also in support of the Ontario Science Centre!

What is Monster Dash ?
Monster Dash consists of a Spooky Mile for kids and families under 12, and a chip-timed 5km & 10km run / walk for young adults and those young at heart. Bring your friends & family, walk your child down the Spooky Mile for some trick or treating and then finish with your own cheering squad at the end of your run! Mom, Dad, and the Ghoulish Entourage are encouraged to also Dress Up and you can buy a Family Plan meal so you don't have to rush home for dinner.
Join in the Halloween theme and come “dressed for costume success” to win top Ghoul for a chance at additional prizing! Spooky Mile kids will receive finisher's ribbons, a swag bag and are welcome to join in on the post-run fun later in the evening!
NEW in 2017 - MONSTER SWAG!
"sick", amazing, cool, call it what you want, these are going to be the MOST sought after finishing medals anywhere in Canada! You have to finish to open the coffin and see what's inside.....
