The DIRWIN Dash, A Bearded Bash Race Description
The DIRWIN DASH
"A Bearded Bash" 5K Run/Walk is in honor of beloved Heritage Christian Schools Guidance Counselor and friend, Dave Irwin. Mr. Irwin's absence is felt daily in our hallways and classrooms, on the cross country course, at sporting events and most of all in our hearts. Students and faculty feel his absence keenly because Mr. Irwin was the one who filled the gap in the lives of countless students...loving them, providing counsel, offering hope, meeting needs, being a friend, spreading laughter and always pointing them to Jesus. Cross country was a sport he loved. We hold this race in his honor and rememberance. The funds raised through this event will be used to support the students of Heritage Christian School, where Mr. Irwin so selflessly served.
~~Psalm 119:32 “I run in the path of your commands, for you have set my heart free.”~~

New to running? DOWNLOAD our ZERO to 5K program - Many newcomers to running become discouraged by the difficulty associated with the activity because they start too fast and push too hard. Their bodies rebel and they wind up miserable, wondering why anyone would possibly want to run in the first place. The Zero to 5K program has been specifically designed to instill a love of running and ends with participating in your first timed 5K.
We’re here to help you achieve your goal(s), be it your first 5K, improving your run, or simply offering a resource where you can run with a group that is designed to help each other stay motivated. You should ease into your 5K training plan gradually. In fact, the program we provide is less of a running regimen than a walking and jogging program. The idea is to transform you from a non-runner, getting you to begin running a 5K ( or 3.1 miles) on a regular basis in just 4 weeks.
It’s easy to get impatient, and you may feel tempted to skip ahead in the program but hold yourself back. Don’t try to do more, even if you feel you can. If, on the other hand, you find the program too strenuous, just stretch it out. Don’t feel pressured to continue faster than you’re able. Repeat weeks if needed and move ahead only when you feel you’re ready.

Most Helpful Review
Good time, great experience, looking forward to doing it again!
I enjoyed this race. It was a beautiful race through the woods. It was nice to run a 5K on trails instead of roads.
This was an amazing event that brought people together to remember a great man and build community. It was a beautful course on a crisp Wi fall morning. Thank you for all those who worked hard to make it a success.
The DIRWIN Dash
The prayer and camaraderie before/after the Dash were very nice. Please have separate trails for runners and walkers, mark them very well so there's no doubt where to go, and have the run and walk the same distance. Also, have all announcements and directions said before releasing people to go to the starting line. It was difficult to hear what was said.
Event was very well organized, trail was beautiful, and seemed to work well for the runners, as well as us walkers. Provided a perfect opportunity to honor Dave, connect with others, highlight Heritage, and present the gospel.
It was lovely. Cold to start but a great fall event. Bring the finish line closer to the crowd near the pavilion! Loved the speakers, national anthem sung live, the food, fire and many great volunteers. Tom did a great job communicating the event.
Good time, great experience, looking forward to doing it again!
