The DUMPSTER DASH sponsored by the Corner Pub at East Decatur Station in Decatur, GA (about six miles east of Five Points in downtown Atlanta) is the WORLD'S FIRST and still the WORLD'S BEST Dumpster Dash.
It's a simple 200 yard sprint, run over a 100 yard paved course (down to a dumpster and back).
The 2008 Season is now open, with race officials (necessary for safety, accuracy, and documentation) available from 6 to 8PM EST almost every Tuesday (primary race day) and Thursday (when the track is not wet). Anyone of any age, gender, or condition can run. Winners are ranked in decade/gender classes.
