That Dam Run Food, Awards & Swag

Before We Talk, Food, Awards & Swag…

We’re raising funds for the new school with That Dam Run event.  All registration fees for the “Walk the Dam Build a School” event will go 100% towards this fundraiser.  Additionally you have an opportunity to donate funds to the GCD School project during registration.  Note that the donations will go to the local Rotary Club which is organizing the fundraiser for the school.  Because of the huge federal ownership of property here, combined with the related lack of industry, it’s quite literally impossible to build a new school through the property tax bonding system in place.  The Grand Coulee District (GCD) cannot raise the money without our help!  The federal government has agreed to help fund the school if GCD can show effort on their part in raising a portion of the funds to build the school.  The amount required is around the $10 million mark, so it is imperative we help. Donate $1, $5, $10, $25 or more!  Whatever you are comfortable with. It all helps!


Information on Pre & Post Race Food:

There will be opportunities to eat lots of carbs at the Colorama Festival Friday, the night before That Dam Run, so make sure you arrive a day early and soak in the festivities.  Details for the Colorama Festival can be found at here. If you need lodging information can be found at our lodgings page above.  We’ll have fruit (bananas, etc..), peanut butter, some type of bread, as well as other goodies at the finish line.  You will also be able to purchase other food at the Colorama Festival.


 Information on What SWAG & Awards You’ll Be Getting:

SWAG is specific to each distance and details are provided for each event below. Clydesdale (200 lb+) and Athena (150 lb+) will NOT be considered a separate age group at this time!

In addition to the items mentioned below, we’ll be working hard with local sponsors to have additional prizes for 1st, 2nd & 3rd places, as well as raffled off prizes. Typically we have been able to get certificates for massages, sports apparel, hotel stays, spa visits, just to mention a few. Stay tuned for updates on what we can line up. 🙂
