Event ID: 151592   Event Status:  On Schedule
DRC The Loop 15K/5K

Presented by the Dallas Running Club

 

We had a lot of fun over the summer, with a cross country relay, the annual picnic, and a race with free breakfast!  But things get a little more serious as we move into fall.  If you are training for a half or full marathon, this is a great way to get in some miles in a real race situation.  The primary race distance, a 15K, is perfectly timed for 4 weeks before the DRC Half Marathon. 

 

Two distances are offered for this race:

  • 15K.  A loop around White Rock Lake.  
  • 5K.

 

Date

Saturday, October 1, 2011

 

Location

Winfrey Point at White Rock Lake

940 E. Lawther Dr in Dallas

 

From the intersection of Buckner Blvd and Garland Rd, go south on Garland Rd for 0.6 miles.  Take a right on Emerald Isle (Barbec’s restaurant is there at the turn) and go approx. 0.5 miles.  Take a left on Winfrey Point Drive at the dead-end, just past the ball fields on your left.  The building at the top of the hill is Winfrey Point, where registration, merchandise sales, and the awards ceremony is held.  The race actually begins straight down the hill from the building, on the lake side.  Map of the lake

Registration

You can register online until Thursday, September 29 at 11:59 pm. 

There will be race day registration.

If you pre-register, go to the Pre-registration table, NOT regular registration.

Expired members will need to renew their memberships race day morning or pay the non-member entry fee.

No mail-in pre-registration.

 

Note: every member has their own log-in username and password.  So Johnny’s wife can only register Johnny for the race by logging in as Johnny – NOT by logging in as herself in their couple membership.  Please email drc@dallasrunningclub.com if you encounter any problems or have questions.

Kids’ Crafts and 1K Race

The weather in Texas is still quite frightful, but Fall is here and that means it is time to scare up some fun at our own Fall Festival! 

 

Have fun playing silly games, making a fun craft, and then running the DRC Kids' 1K! Fun and games start at 8 with the Fun Run starting around 9:30. Awards will be 3 deep for boys and girls ages 2-7 and 8-12.

 

Please pre-register your kids to help us out in planning.  We welcome any parent volunteers during the activities.
