Dash for the Splash

The Goodrich Square Steering Committee will be hosting the Dash for the Splash on October 22, 2011 to benefit the Goodrich Square Splash Park. A 1-mile Fun Run/Walk will start at 8:15 a.m. followed by the 5K at 9:00 a.m. Registration will be held from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. in the South Goodrich Park Pavilion. The event will start and end where the splash park will be located in South Goodrich Park near the intersection of High Street and Parkview Drive.

The cost is $15 for one person, $25 for two people, or $40 for a family. Each participant will receive a Dash for the Splash t-shirt. Extra t-shirts can be purchased for $8 each, and additional donations will also be accepted. The event is sponsored by several Milton area businesses.

The Goodrich Square Splash Park is part of an overall plan for the Goodrich Square downtown district that was finalized in 2010 as a response to the State Highway 26 bypass. The Goodrich Square Steering Committee was established in 2010 to work on implementing the various features of the master plan.

Registration forms are available on the City’s website and at City Hall (430 E. High Street).

If you would like to volunteer for the event or have any questions, contact Community Services Manager Inga Jacobson at (608) 868-6900 ext. 4 or by e-mail at
