About The Determination Dash

Follow the Determination Dash on Facebook:

The Determination Dash 5K Run/Walk at Encompass Health Harmarville is an annual event designed to celebrate runners and walkers of all abilities. 

Our race benefits the HOPE Network. The mission of the HOPE Network is to promote community integration of people with physical disability and chronic health conditions in southwestern Pennsylvania through sports and recreation programs and services that support a return to healthy, productive lifestyles.

Challenge yourself or a friend, bring the family, or run for a loved one in need. The event will be a true mashup of fun and abilities as avid runners, joggers, walkers, hand cyclists and individuals with disabilities all participate on the same course.
