The format of this phenomenon has now been cast in stone: an 8.27am start, a three minute dash from the Heritage Condos to Amphi M using whatever means possible.
The first who sits in Amphi M is the winner of the Dash. Spectators at the inaugural Dash were stunned at the dedication shown by the Dash pioneers - there were ice hockey players, motor bike riders, joggers, car drivers and even a human canon ball. Never before had Dover Road or the INSEAD campus seen such a formidable team of amphi stormers.
The above DASH movie transformed the first DASH goofs into legends - the first step into immortality was taken by Nathaniel Jonah -- the human cannonball who catapulted himself over the Ayer Rajah traffic lights and into Amphi M as if his life depended on it.
