The Hot Trot Half Marathon, 10K and 5K starts at the Continental Bridge Gateway Plaza in Dallas and features a mostly flat course along the Trinity Skyline Trail.

All proceeds from the Hot Trot benefit the Assist the Officer Foundation

All three courses are USATF certified and feature beautiful views of the iconic Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge and the Dallas skyline. The 5K run/walk features a scenic loop from Ronald Kirk Bridge to the Trinity Skyline Trails. The 10K and Half Marathon course takes runners over two scenic bridges and through Trammel Crow Park, just finish steps away from an epic post-race party and restaurants at Trinity Groves. All race participants (including 5K and 10K) receive a super-cool finisher medal, a thin blue-line silicone bracelet, and a gender-specific tech shirt. Definitely a cause and race swag worth running for!
