Testimonials

Here's what others are saying about the Yankee Doodle Dash:

“Great race, great course, friendly volunteers. I will be back again next year.”


“This race has become a sort of tradition for our family. My wife really enjoys coming to Everett as her parents live up in the area. The race is always a good way for encouraging other friends and family to join who don't run much.”


“I always enjoy running into people I know at the YDD, as well as people I only know from seeing at local races. It’s a great hometown race.”


“Love this event. It's fun, easy to access, and well put on. Thanks to all the volunteers and policemen who make it possible.”


“This was a great family friendly race. I ran it with 5 of my kids and everyone had a great uneventful run. By uneventful I mean the course was well manned and marked so nobody could get sidetracked or lost, this has happened before. My 5 yo was so excited to run her first 5k and commented a few times on the run about how nice and encouraging" everyone was to her. Well done!”


“Has become a family thing and a great way to encourage myself to stay healthy all year long.”


“My family loves this race! Last year I did the 5k and my kids did the dash and proudly carried around their ribbons for days. This year they did the mile with my husband! Thanks for puting on a great race :)”


“The YDD has been our family's 4th of July tradition now for the past 12 years. It's great to see local supporters like my Cross Country Coach Steve Bertrand who got me into long distance running and now my 14 year old daughter who is at the start of her running career comes out too.”
