Drumstick Dash

ERM’s sixth annual Drumstick Dash is our run/walk where participants can move their feet so others can eat! Benefitting our annual Thanksgiving food basket giveaway, the Gobbler Gathering, the Drumstick Dash will take place at 8 a.m. on Saturday, November 11 starting and finishing at ERM’s main campus in downtown Evansville (500 East Walnut Street, Evansville, IN 47713).

With a potential new race route (along North Main Street) in Evansville, Indiana, there will be three running/walking distances registrants can choose from: an 8K (less than five miles) distance that will pass through historic Bosse Field (home to the Evansville Otters) and Garvin Park, a 5K distance, and a 1 mile distance.

REGISTER NOW FOR THE DASH!
