This long-standing fundraising event has contributed over $100,000 to the U of C Dinos track & field and cross-country teams.
In 2004, two enterprising University of Calgary students dreamed up this race to help fund the University of Calgary’s Dinos cross country and track & field teams. Since then, over $100,000 has been contributed to help provide scholarships, competition opportunities and uniforms for student athletes. Go Dinos!
