I know that the thought of running in the current heat isn’t exactly up the alley of many folks. Thankfully, most decent 5-10k’s, half and full marathons and other assorted races (see last week’s post about the Tough Mudder) take place in either the spring or the fall.
DFW RUNS seems to be a pretty unique marketing organization that hosts all sorts of really cool races throughout not only our state, but throughout the country. Don’t let the D/FW in their name fool you. Races in Colorado, Minnesota and Utah, among other locales are on the group’s agenda for the next few weeks.
Not only does the group have a flair for variety in terms of race locations, but in the actual type of race as well. Whether it’s you seemingly typical 5k for charity, a Brewery sponsored race where everyone gets a commemorative pint glass to go with the standard t-shirt or an 6 mile, obstacle-filled “Mud Run,” DFW RUNS has a full agenda that should make choosing something for runners of any skill level easy to manage.
Below are some upcoming Texas events, hosted by DFW RUNS:
