This longstanding fundraising event has contributed close to $100,000 to the U of C Dino track and cross country team.

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!
