The Nathan Dash to get hearts racing

Take your marks. Get set. Go.

That command will ring out around Campus Heart next week as the Nathan Dash is run and won on Tuesday, March 28

Open to staff and students, the 660m sprint goes through the centre of campus, starting at the Campus Heart travelling along the Johnson path, through the underpass to The Hub circling down past the Centre for Interfaith and Cultural Dialogue and returning back down the Johnson path to finish where it began.

Griffith Sport Marketing Coordinator Lana Mastop said the event continues to grow after being brought back in 2014 after an eight year hiatus.

“It promotes the fantastic fitness culture at Griffith that is nurtured by the University’s many sporting facilities.

“We’re confident the event will attract a combination of highly trained competitors and those just looking for a fun way to participate with their colleagues and peers.”

The Nathan Dash will offer the winning participant bragging rights as the fastest on campus as well a $150 dollar prize up for grabs for Open Student – Women’s and Men’s categories.
