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.
