HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – The second-annual Double Helix Dash at McMillian Park will be held Tuesday, Apr 2, at 5:30 p.m.

The HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is hosting this event in cooperation with other partners and sponsors.

Run the Double Helix Dash 5K (3.1 miles) or the 1-mile route through the distinctive double-helix running path of McMillian Park, as well as points through Cummings Research park.

The Double Helix Dash is open to everyone, from serious runners to those who are just beginning their journeys toward healthier, fitter lifestyles. HudsonAlpha welcomes runners and walkers of all levels, but for safety reasons, asks that you please reserve strollers for the 1-mile race.

Both the Double Helix Dash 5K and 1-mile runs start and finish on Genome Way, in front of the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology. For those who want to cheer on runners or simply watch the race, find a spot in McMillian Park or along the route on Explorer Boulevard.
