Third Annual Run for the Dream, Williamsburg, VA, June1-2, 2013 Run for the Dream is a great opportunity to compete in a boutique race in a unique historic setting. The race has something for everyone. It includes an 8K Run/Walk, the 2013 USA Masters 8km National Championship, and a Kids Fun Run. It also includes a Half Marathon and new this year, a Half Marathon Relay.
The course winds through beautiful Colonial Williamsburg, along quaint streets and the scenic James River, and when you cross the finish line you do it in style in William & Mary’s football stadium. It makes for a great photo finish. Race management is Dave McGillivray and the DMSE team.
The race offers great value. Every year the first 3,000 registrants receive a free $70 ticket and $15 food voucher to Busch Gardens and a $40 ticket to Colonial Williamsburg. After the race, celebrate at the post-race party with delicious BBQ and libations, live music and more.
This year, our new race director Kelly Baker, has put her personal touch to some cool new swag with a redesigned tee shirt, upgraded finisher’s medals and a new goodie bag.
