Runners wind through Fair Park on Saturday, June 1, conquering 13 obstacles and challenges such as a balance beam, dumpster diving, and a tractor-trailer crawl.

Fair Park 5K Urban Dash
Fair Park brims with Art Deco statues, murals, and buildings dating back to the 1930s, when the park was the site of a World Fair celebrating The Republic of Texas’s centennial. During the Fair Park 5K Urban Dash, modern-day runners enjoy views of these historic landmarks, while overcoming obstacles that pepper the race route. These impediments include a wall climb, hurdles, and a dumpster dive, which add an extra challenge to the annual run without the confusion that an invisible finish line brings.
