Double Helix Dash
The iconic Double Helix Dash 5K run and 1-mile fun run attracts more than 800 participants. One of the most unique races in North America, the race begins and ends on the HudsonAlpha campus and winds through the distinctive bends of the world’s largest double helix in McMillian Park. Proceeds from the Double Helix Dash support HudsonAlpha’s work with rare and undiagnosed genetic disorders, which affect some 25 million people across the country.
The 2020 Double Helix Dash will be held in April. Click here for more information and to register for the Double Helix Dash.
