The Dish Race is a unique 3.25 mile fun run through the iconic Dish trail at Stanford, sponsored by the Stanford Running Club in partnership with Stanford Recreation and Wellness. Whether you're a competitive runner or just want a fun workout, mark your calendars today and participate in a Stanford tradition! All are welcome. The Sixth Annual Dish Race will take place on:
Sunday, February 26th, 2017
at 9:00 AM (competitive race) and 11:00 AM (fun run/walk)
starting at the Gerona Gate / Campus Drive entrance.
Check out the Facebook event for this year's race.
And remember, don't get dish-slapped!
Do you think you can take what it dishes out? Be a part of a Stanford tradition.
This year the event will be slightly different compared to previous years. We will have two races, a competitive race starting at 9am and a noncompetitive fun run/walk starting at 11am. This will allow for more participants and separate those looking for a competitive run and those seeking a more relaxed jog and/or walk event.
$20 for Stanford-affiliated runners/walkers
$30 for non-Stanford-affiliated runners/walkers
Online registration closes at noon on Saturday, Feb 25th. All race entrants who enter before February 12th will receive a free 2017 Dish Race shirt.
There will be a cap of 250 entrants per race (competitive and non-competitive) and on-the-day entries will be available assuming this cap has not been reached. See you there!
The race will be electronically timed and prizes will be awarded to top overall and age group finishers.
If you are running in the competitive race, please plan on being off the race course by 10am in order to allow for the running of the fun run/walk. If you think you will require more time, we suggest entering in the fun run/walk.
For the competitive race, bib pickup will be available between 8:15 and 8:45am. For the fun run/walk, bib pickup will be available between 10:15 and 10:45am.
Parking is available in residential lots off Campus Drive (marked on race day). Race start/finish will be at the Campus Drive & Junipero Serra gate near Lake Lagunita.

The Dish Race route runs clockwise on the Dish, starting at the entrance nearest to Campus Drive. It totals to be 3.25 miles.
When Leland Stanford Sr. arrived in California in the mid-19th century, his first observation of the beautiful, sweeping landscape was a statement to his wife.
"Jane," Leland Sr. said, "I really am of the opinion that that hill you see over yonder would make a fine racecourse."
And hence began the Annual Stanford Dish Race. Course records are below:
