ABOUT THE RACE

The family-friendly Long Run starts and finishes at the front lawn of J.L. Long Middle School in historic East Dallas.  After the races, runners, student groups, and community members meet for food, refreshments, and entertainment. 


The 2018 event will take place Thursday, October 18th (Fair Day is the 19th and all DISD students will have the day off) with festivities beginning at 5:30 pm. The 1-mile fun run/walk, beginning at 6:00 pm, is oriented to kids, families and those “not so serious” runners. It will encircle the J.L. Long Middle School and Woodrow Wilson High School campuses. The 5K Long Run, beginning at 6:30 pm, offers runners a winding and challenging course that starts in front of J.L. Long Middle School. The course takes runners through historic, tree-lined streets of the Hollywood Heights neighborhood and Santa Fe Trail offering runners some wonderful views of historic homes in picturesque old East Dallas. The race finishes at the school and after race activities will be in the front lawn of school located at 6116 Reiger Ave Dallas, TX 75214

Each entrant will receive a race T-shirt and dinner. In addition, awards will be given for the fastest runners in the various age categories.

Early registration, through Sunday, October 7, 2018, is just $25 per person.
