Da Race That Thinks it's a Party
Join thousands of Ditkas at Soldier Field for the Ditka Dash presented by Miller Lite. All participants will receive a proper mustache, aviator sunglasses, cold beer, an amazing finisher medal, and a race shirt reminiscent of Coach Ditka's fine wool sweater vest.
After the race, celebrate at the Miller Lite Mustache Bash with cold beer, music, and thousands of mustache-clad Ditkas.

On race day, be sure to allow enough time to check in (e.g., parking, gear check, etc.) before your start time. We recommend participants arrive at least 45 minutes before their wave time.
The Ditka Dash is expected to sell out in record time. Once a wave is sold out, we are unable to allow any additional registrations for that wave.
