Throw Out All the Fashion Rules!
Pick your CLASH DASH race outfit based on your favorite crazy combinations of colors and patterns. We encourage all runners to show up in mismatched prints, offbeat fabrics, and tacky accessories. Our fun event will blend together a mix of great people in support of Girls on the Run.
Take To the Course!
This 5K road race will follow a scenic course beginning in front of Stuart Country Day School (SCDS) on Stuart Road in Princeton, New Jersey. Heading north on Stuart Road, the out and back course goes gently uphill and bears left on Bouvant Road. The turnaround is positioned just before Bouvant meets Cherry Hill Road. Return to SCDS on an easier downhill and finish on campus in the school’s main parking lot. The race runs along wide and smooth roads. It may be covered with fall leaves and it is certain to be beautiful in November.
A Perfect Location
This tree lined race course is conveniently located at Stuart Country Day School, just 3 miles east from the center of Princeton. Parking is easy and FREE. You will find the main SCDS parking lot in front of the school off of Stuart Road. A second lot is just around the corner on the Great Road.
To access the main parking lot before Stuart Road is closed for the race, please arrive before 7:30am. The Great Road parking lot will remain open for the duration of the race.

Benefitting Girls On the Run
We are proud to be able to offer a portion of the proceeds from this event to Girls on the Run, a transformational activity based youth development program for girls in 3rd – 8th grade. They teach life skills through dynamic interactive lessons and running games. The 10 week program culminates with participants being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.
