The 14th Annual Dash for Doobie at Reagan High School in Pfafftown, North Carolina will once again be one of the premier 3200m events across the Southeast. The meet serves as a perfect tune-up ahead of Running Lane XC Nationals and Eastbay South.
Last year the event took place during the spring due to COVID, but they are excited to be back on their regular date at the end of the cross country season and ahead of the indoor track season.
The Dash for Doobie has been one of the premier events of the cross country and track season in North Carolina with many athletes posting breakthrough 3200m performances while in peak form from the cross country season.
A major benefit for NCHSAA athletes is the event that participates in indoor track can use their times to get into the indoor state championships for 2021-22, if they are under their classes designated standard.
As the meet has done since 2019, they will award the Dash for Doobie Scholarship. The meet awards 1 senior boy 3200 participants and 1 senior girl 3200 participants a one-time $500 scholarship. Scholarship applications are due by November 7th.
"Due to the success of the Dash for Doobie we are excited to expand the scholarships offered. We are now able to give two scholarships to Reagan HS seniors each year in Nicholas Doub's memory. This wouldn't be possible without the great support we get each year. After Dash for Doobie in 2018, I met with Nick's family. They expressed an interest to give back to the runners that have helped this event become such a success. For the 3rd year we will give out two $500 scholarships (1 senior boy and 1 senior girl) on Nov. 20th to New Balance Dash for Doobie participants. Any senior who is planning to enroll in post-secondary schooling and participates in the Dash for Doobie is eligible. Information and an application can be found on the meet page." - Coach Eric Fritz, Meet Director
The event will be broadcast live on MileSplit and we will have photos, archived race videos and interviews from the event posted at the conclusion.
Registration for the event is now open through November 14th at Midnight. The entry fee is $15 per 3200m athlete.
This years meet is expected to once again be bigger than ever with around 600 athletes from North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, Texas and from all over the East Coast.
