A year round event

34 days, 22 hours, 47 minutes, 50 seconds to race start...

So what does it take to put on a race? Participants (you!) partners (City of Dallas, Dallas Running Club, Luke's Locker, Trinity Commons Foundation), volunteers, and meetings, meetings, meetings.

We are fortunate to have an amazing group of partners that make this one of the best running events in the country. Nine volunteers representing these partners meet year round to plan and execute this event. You will see them scurrying around on race day to make sure everything goes off as planned, and it usually does :). But know that race day is merely a few hours of concentrated action that are the result of a year's worth of work (really ten years worth of work since each year builds on the last).

We are also fortunate to have a strong and supportive running community. We know that many of you spend all year preparing for running events - some have been preparing for decades! We want this to be the best event you run in all year. Please tell us how we can improve by stopping one of us on race day, or email us, tweet us, or find us on Facebook.
