The Dash action gives you extra movement for the current turn (equal to your speed). If I have an effect (like the Expeditious Retreat spell or the monk's Step of the Wind feature) which allows me to dash as a bonus action, can I also dash as my regular action, for triple movement?

Yes.

If you can dash as a bonus action you can move, dash, and then dash again, moving thrice your speed in a round.

There is no stipulation on Dash that you can't use it as an action (if you have the ability to do so) if you've taken it as your bonus action (like there is with casting a spell as a bonus action).

  • \$\begingroup\$ @J.A.Streich Did you miss a negative in that comment? JC's tweets are no longer official rulings. \$\endgroup\$ – Someone_Evil Jul 24 at 20:17
  • \$\begingroup\$ Lol. I know I typed not or aren't..... But yes, I missed a negative. JC's tweets aren't official anymore. It has been a pain in my butt for a while as mods keep finding my old answers. \$\endgroup\$ – J. A. Streich Jul 24 at 20:20
