The Parent Teacher Organization from your local Montessori School of Dayton is hosting our first annual 5K and Fun Run event called Running of the Bison followed by a Family Fun Festival. Proceeds from this event will support student enrichment activities that foster our mission of creating independent, resilient individuals who value integrity, community, and tolerance.

The race begins on Ghent St between Acosta St. and Galewood St. The Fun Run is a ½ mile loop around the block. The 5K race is an out-and-back that includes neighborhood streets and the Iron Horse Trail through State Farm Park. There will be handmade, unique awards, created by the middle school students, for top 3 overall winners and top 3 age group awards for males and females for the 5K race. Age groups are: 1-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60 and older.
