A New 5K for a New Era

Five 5Ks. 24 Hours. 

Miss the thrill of a live event? Join us for a live, contactless, self-paced, and safe experience that challenges you to complete up to five different 5Ks in 24 hours, all around Dallas and the surrounding suburbs.


The Facts:

  • Five 5Ks
  • 24 Hours
  • Dallas Metro Area
  • 7:00 p.m. Friday, May 14 until 7:00 p.m. Saturday, May 15
  • You may choose to support a charity partner with your participation and fundraise. We will create a fundraising webpage for you (which you can personalize with your own photo and story) and give you tools to help you raise money. There’s no commitment, no requirement to raise a certain amount of money, so there is nothing to lose – and everything to gain.

Two Ways to Participate:

  • 5x5K CHALLENGE: $55 entry fee for access to all five 5K courses (plus a custom headlamp!)
  • 5x5K YOUR WAY: Choose your own adventure! If one or two 5Ks in a day is more your speed. $45 entry fee for access to up to four 5K courses

How does it work?

We map out five 5K courses all around Dallas the surrounding suburbs and you’ve got 24 hours – from 7:00 p.m. on May 14 to 7:00 p.m. on May 15 – to run (or walk) as many of them as you want. It’s safe, contactless, self-paced, and COVID-compliant, with app-guided routes.

We may not be able to get together in groups, but we can still experience the thrill of a live event, a community of people taking on the same challenge on the same day. And we’ll be doing some good along the way – if you register with the option to support one of our local charity partners.

Participants will get:

Race Bib Medal QR Code 5 Courses 24 Hours

Race Bib, Recognition Medal, QR code event ticket, Five mapped 5K courses, 24 hours, headlamp (for full 5x5K challenge registrants)

We will set up five start lines (exact locations TBD). You choose when, where, and how many courses to go to within the 24-hour race period (Note: Some courses will be closed from 10:00 p.m. – 6:00 a.m., depending on local regulations). When you arrive at each one, you’ll scan your QR code and will receive a text with a link to your 5K route in RunGo. Scan again as you leave to confirm you finished the course. Share your times on the Rungo leaderboard to show off!

If you register with the option to fundraise, you’ll also get an online fundraising page where you can collect donations to support one of our charity partners.
