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! 


The success of the VanderDash is dependent upon our committee volunteers, support from our generous sponsors, and participation of enthusiastic runners and walkers. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact VanderDash co-chairs Abi Delfino and Justin Delfino. If you are interested in corporate sponsor opportunities, please contact Julie Hagar and Kim Wolfe. We look forward to hearing from you.


Registration is now open and only $20/runner. Family sponsorships are available for $150 and include 4 race registrations, a yard sign showing your support of the VanderDash, and your family's name listing on the race website. Register by February 23, 2018 to guarantee your race t-shirt. Register at today!



Ready, set, let's VanderDash!
