What is Run Project?
The Run Project is the new series name for the Racing Systems family of races. Our goal is to provide an exceptional experience for runners right here in our local community and to give back to organizations in the Dallas area. Run Local. Give Local. Some of these events have been around for over 21 years. Others are new and growing, but they collectively represent some of the best running events in the DFW area.
How do I register?
All registration is done either online, during packet pickup or race day at the Run Project booth. Each race webpage on this site also provides a link to our registration site.

You can find the deadline for online registration on each race page. Historically, our races often sell out. When this happens and registration closes early, we’ll post that information on this website.
Can I register on the day of the event?
Yes, see specific event pages for race day registration information, but remember our races often sell out. When this happens, there will be no race day registration. We’ll post that information on this website.

Yes, you can get advice from the folks at OrangeTheory and from runner and coach Bob Wallace right here on our website.

What is race insurance?
If for any reason you are unable to pick up your race materials and attend the race, this insurance will allow you to enter another like-distance event within the year.

This must be done prior to or within two weeks of the original missed event. Race Insurance must be purchased at time of registration.
