Dash Down Greenville 5K
Congratulations to all who participated in the 20th running of the annual St. Paddy's Day Dash Down Greenville, joining the sea of green to start their St. Patrick's Day celebration with a walk/run down Greenville before the parade. 'Twas a fine morning to celebrate, even for those who were only Irish for the day. We had beer, food, a live band, cash prizes, and more fun than ever before. Besides having fun, we made a significant contribution to the North Texas Food Bank, the annual beneficiary of the event.
MEDAL UPDATE: As announced last week, the finisher medals are unfortunately victim to the massive cargo backup at the Los Angeles ports. It does not appear that they will arrive before race day. Bummer, we know. However, YOU WILL GET YOUR MEDAL, in fact, the medals will arrive in Dallas late next week. We will communicate with you via email once they arrive.
