Mad Dash and Knockdown ( () () がれ () () として Kakeagare Keotoshite?) is the twenty-fourth chapter of Kohei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia.

Summary

Class 1-A walks out to the Freshmen Stage of U.A.'s Sports Festival. The other freshmen classes also walk out. The Chief Referee for the Freshmen Stage of U.A.'s Sports Festival, Midnight, asks for the player representative who is Katsuki Bakugo to come towards the stage. Katsuki goes to the stage and tells Midnight he will place first, causing the other classes to rebuke him.

Midnight announces the preliminaries (or the First Event) of the Sports Festival. She reveals the first event to be the Obstacle Race; a nearly 4 km race around the stadium.

The Obstacle Race starts and Izuku finds trouble in securing a place in the race. Shoto Todoroki makes his move by freezing the ground causing dozens of students to become stuck in ice and skids himself into first place. However, all of Class 1-A avoid Shoto's ice. Shoto comments that he expected some them to avoid his ice, but more than he expected dodged it. Minoru tries to attack Shoto with his Quirk but is knocked away by a Robo Inferno. The first obstacle is revealed; lots of Villain Robots from the entrance exam block the way. However, Shoto instantly freezes many Villain Robots with his ice, defeating them. The Villain Robots come crashing down, blocking the way for the other students while Shoto himself forges ahead, having gained a huge lead over the others.

Izuku is confronted by some Villain Robots, deciding that now is the time to put his head to use, no longer shaking in fear unlike in the Entrance Exam.
