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!


Our race draws competitive runners, casual participants, Vanderlyn students and their families. Over the past eleven 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 1,000 participants, our race is one of the largest events in Dunwoody!
