Dyslexia Dash 5K

October 23, 2011 admin News

Congratulations to Race Director Courtney Russell for her successful Dyslexia Dash 5K Prediction Run, held Saturday, October 22.

“Prediction Run” awards and special prizes will be given to the ten runners who come closest to predicting their 5k finish time (regardless of age or gender) Runners will be asked to predict their finishing time when they register for the race. This race will be run without the benefit of watches, course timers or mile markers!

Over two hundred runners participated in this run.  NEO TC member  Lloyd Thomas had the fastest race time, a 5K in 18:17; but he did not win the race.  Lloyd predicted he would finish in 18:30; but ran a fast 18:17 instead. Lloyd ended up being 11th in the prediction run.

Brandon Russell came in third in the Prediction run, since he predicted he would run a 22:22, and ran a 22:25 5K, a difference of three seconds.

The next Dyslexia Dash 5K will be held October 21, 2012.  Thanks to all who participated.  This event will raise awareness for language-based learning differences such as dyslexia, and provide an opportunity for runners and walkers of all ability levels to have fun and compete on an even playing field. Proceeds benefit NOBIDA and Lawrence School.
