VanderDash, Vanderlyn's 5K and Fun Run 



The VanderDash is Vanderlyn's signature community spirit-building family event. Through the VanderDash, Vanderlyn's community and the broader community come together to celebrate our local school with a fun, fitness-focused morning. The Vanderlyn PTO is proud to say this year's race will be our 10th Annual! 


Our race draws competitive runners, casual participants, Vanderlyn students and their families. Over the past nine years, this race has hosted thousands of runners, walkers and families through a professionally timed 5K race and a 1-Mile Fun Run. With more than 1,200 participants, our race is one of the largest events in Dunwoody! 


Our 10th Anniversary VanderDash was a huge success! Thanks to all of our runners, walkers, volunteers, family sponsors and corporate sponsors. With your help, we continue to enhance the education of every student at Vanderlyn! 



Thank you to our Title Sponsor
