Annual Dinosaur-Themed 5K Run/Walk and 1K Fun Run to Raise Money for the NMMNHF, with Prizes/Medals for Winning Runners and Best Dinosaur Costumes


The New Mexico Museum of Natural History’s 2nd Annual Dino Dash will be taking place on Sunday, September 16th – providing a fun day for kids, adults, and dinosaur-lovers of all ages while raising funds to support the New Mexico Museum of Natural History Foundation. The event combines a 5K Run and Fitness Walk, 1K Kids Fun Run and Dinosaur Costume Contest – with winners, prizes, and awards given out in a number of different age divisions in what has become an annual tradition in Albuquerque.


The 2018 Dino Dash will begin at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science, located at 1801 Mountain Road NW in Old Town Albuquerque. The events kick off with the 7:30 a.m. 5K Run & Fitness Walk, followed by the 9:00 AM Kids 1K Fun Run, which is a non-competitive run for kids 10 years and under. Participants in the 5K Run/Walk can either be individuals or teams (5K teams must be made up of a minimum of 5 members, with no max limit.) The 5K Overall Male and Female first place winners will receive a $250 prize and a plaque, with the first place 5K Team receiving a $100 gift certificate to any West Downtown restaurant of their choice and a plaque. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers in each 5K Male and Female age division will also receive a medal.


All participants and spectators are encouraged to come to the Dino Dash dressed in their most authentic dinosaur costume – adding to the day’s fun, as well as to enter themselves in the Dino Dash Costume Contest. Costumes will be judged by audience feedback at the conclusion of the Kids 1K Fun Run, with prizes awarded to the loudest audience feedback for the adult male, adult female, and different age categories for kids. In addition, participants and spectators can bring their own personal “vintage Dino Dash t-shirts” to the race to be entered into a raffle, with the winner receiving a one-year Family Membership to the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science, valued at $100.
