Join us for the Inaugural Richardson Challenge presented by GEICO

 Are you ready for the biggest running event in Richardson history?   We are excited to introduce The Richardson Challenge: A Trilogy of Races, making its debut in the fall of 2019!  Compete in three awesome races – the Heroes in Disguise 5K, the Spirit Run! 5K, and the Richardson Gobble Hobble 5K/10K – and you will earn the coveted Challenge Medal!  This limited registration event will allow you access to three of the finest races in Richardson, all designed for you to celebrate the victory with your friends and family!


Each of the Challenge’s three races take place at Galatyn Park and benefit local nonprofits that are committed to helping children in the DFW area.   The first race, the Heroes in Disguise 5K, will be on Saturday, October 26th, and all proceeds will benefit Heroes for Children.   The second race, the Spirit Run! 5K, will be on Saturday, November 2nd, and all proceeds will benefit the RISD Excellence in Education Fund.  The final race, the Richardson Gobble Hobble 5K/10K, will be on Saturday, November 23rd, and all proceeds will benefit The Boys and Girls Club of Richardson.

We invite you to join the trilogy!   Accept The Richardson Challenge!
