2014 Registration is open! Register Now
The Run for the Dream is now under the ownership of Flat-Out Events. Based in Newport News, Virginia, Flat-Out Events is an athletic events management company that coordinates races throughout Hampton Roads. Race operations will continue under the direction of Dave McGillivray, the race director of the BAA Boston Marathon, and his company DMSE Sports.
Race staff from Flat-Out Events and DMSE Sports are working diligently to confirm arrangements for the 2014 event. Features of the course through Colonial Williamsburg and the College of William & Mary will remain the same. Due to permitting restrictions with the National Park Service, the portion of the half marathon that includes the Colonial Parkway will be changed for 2014. Information on the new portion of the course will be posted on the web site as soon as it is finalized. Be assured that the new course will be measured by representatives from USATF and will be certified.
Here's Why You Run
The Run for the Dream was created in 2011 as a fundraiser for An Achievable Dream, a non-profit organization that operates two nationally recognized K–12 schools in partnership with Newport News Public Schools. Although An Achievable Dream no longer owns the Run for the Dream, the organization will continue as a beneficiary of the event.
“This is an exciting time for An Achievable Dream with the expansion of our program to Virginia Beach in 2014,” said Kathy Edwards, interim president. “As we are growing, staff resources are needed in other capacities. We know that the race is in good hands and will continue to be a success.”
