OC CON Super Hero Run and Dash

OC CON Super Hero 1 Mile Run and Kids Running Events
Saturday, April 6, 2024

Ocean City's annual OC CON Comic Book and Memorabilia Show includes a one-mile Super Hero Run, which encourages costumed characters of all ages to show off their speed. A separate Super Hero running events for kids age 12 and under puts a series of fun challenges in the path of our speedy young crusaders.


The 1-Mile Super Hero Run starts at 9 a.m. on the Boardwalk at the Music Pier, and the out-and-back course goes down the Boardwalk. An awards ceremony is at 10:00 a.m. inside the Pier. Entry in the one-mile event entitles all 12-and-unders to participate in the Super Hero running events at 9:30 a.m. at the Music Pier (racers do not have to check in twice -- they can wear their 1-mile race bibs).
