*Because the event falls on Halloween this year and in order to accommodate your trick or treating traditions, we have moved the 2020 event to earlier in he afternoon. The Dash of Doom is Calgary's only Halloween Night Race! This is a family-friendly and pet-friendly event. Families, dogs and strollers are all encouraged to don their creative costumes and take part in this race supporting AARCS. Register early, this race sells out every year!

WHY It's Spooktacular

  • Festive finish line food - is there such thing as too much candy?!

  • Finish line fun - stay for the carnival-like atmosphere

  • Kids race for the wee ghosties

  • Animals in costumes, need we say more?

  • Photo booth, DJ, face-painting, and poochie vendors to keep the whole gang entertained

  • Dig deep into the tickle trunk as we will be awarding costume prizes in a number of categories

  • Proud dog parent moment - if your pooch wins Best Dog Costume, they'll be featured on next years medal and swag!

Past Results






Running and walking in support of AARCS. In Alberta, thousands of cats and dogs are homeless, abandoned, abused or living in horrendous conditions.In 2017, AARCS saw over 2,500 cats and dogs through their  programs. Help us make a difference in the lives of animals. 

**All fees associated with race registration are non-refundable and non-transferable to another participant. This act may seem well intentioned, but has many negative implications to the organizers and participants including liability, timing, results, awards and many other factors. Giving or selling a bib to someone who is not officially registered will result in disqualification, and the original participant being banned from future run calgary events.
