Jay Dix Challenge
The 15th annual Jay Dix Challenge to Cure 10K Run & 5K Walk/Run is a family event that supports a terrific local cause. The event offers three distances to choose from: a 5K walk, and 5K and 10K runs. Each is chip-timed and starts simultaneously from Flat Branch Park. The challenge is run in memory of the late Jay Dix – physician, former Boone County medical examiner and Columbia multisport member – to raise funds for Ellis Fischel Cancer Center.
