Add’l… 5K @ 8:00 AM; 1M @ 9:00 AM ….Our racing mission continues to be to produce affordable, hedonistically fun & athletically competitive races that also benefit some charity(-ies) with a populist & gender parity focus – for the average runner/walker (including the novices) and also for the seasoned, serious racer…. Jack Hernandez, 5-year old son of Sergio and Rita Hernandez of Granbury, TX, was injured in a lawnmower accident on Friday, 13th April 2012. Sergio is a familiar top age-group runner/racer in the DFW area races. As a result of the accident, Jack’s leg had to be amputated below the knee. Medical costs for Jack’s treatment and rehabilitation are mounting for the Hernandez family. This 5K/1M race is to rally this area’s runners/walkers/racers – our racing community -- to help one of our own. All contributions are greatly appreciated!.....
