Follow a fast and flat course (well, mostly flat...there is one little hill..but then the downhill to the finish is awesome) beginning at Temple Isaiah 332 W. Alejo in Palm Springs and following a quiet and scenic route through local neighborhoods.
The Elf Dash, for children 10 and under is a short 200 meter run at the start/finish line and well in view of all parents and spectators.
Get into the Christmas Spirit and help support Guide Dogs of the Desert, a 501c3 charity that provides guide dogs at no cost for the blind and sight impaired as well as assistance dogs for those with seizures, Autism or PTSD.
