2019 Trash Dash 5k

  • 7632 Fair Oaks Avenue Dallas, TX, 75231 United States (map)


Expect AT LEAST as much SWAG this year as you got last year! And once again this year, your swag bag itself will be a strong reusable grocery tote bag ( we ARE working to save the environment :-) ). No throw-away plastic bags here!

This exciting woods trail run takes place through the beautiful and wildly wooded area of the DORBA-managed Harry Moss DORBA Trails Park. As you enjoy the serene setting, you’ll also learn about the conservation projects undertaken by members of the Environmental League Chapters, GreenTeam members of GroundWork Dallas, and members of the NAF Academies.

Your ticket to this race helps support our Environmental League chapter members' efforts to improve our environment and their learning about science, business, and environmental conservation. Even though this is a wild run through beautiful wooded trails, this is still a CHIP-TIMED RACE. Come see how your road-warrior time holds up against a wood trails course! This is a mild obstacle course: at 10+ stations, runners have to do a simple exercise (eg, 3 air squats or 2 burpees, etc). Runners can "buy out" of the exercise by dropping a piece of litter off at the student-manned station as they run by. Our Environmental League chapter students have picked up over 400 fifty-gallon bags of litter from this park -- show them you appreciate what they've done and are doing by joining our race!
