UT Dallas CometTHON's Jungle Run is an annual non-profit social 5k held in the spring semester on campus at UT Dallas. Students and non-students are encouraged to come. The event is pet friendly, so feel free to bring your dog! A family friendly atmosphere with fun and games to keep the kids entertained, all included with your ticket price.
CometTHON is #ForTheKids, we raise money all year to contribute to Children's Miracle Network and help provide free healthcare and groundbreaking research to North Texas families. At the end of each year, we host a Dance Marathon where all are welcome to come party with a purpose, where we unveil the final amount that we raised over the year and get to hear from some of our miracle kids.
We are a North Dallas grassroots "social group" who are dedicated walkers/runners of all levels, ages and abilities whose mission is to support each other’s goals.
Regardless of finicky North Dallas weather, mall-walkers to marathoners alike meet at 6:45 p.m. in various locations across the North Dallas (such as Allen, TX , Fairview, TX, Plano, TX, Frisco, TX, McKinney, TX , Lucas, TX , Murphy, Garland, TX, Richardson, Rowlett and across Dallas,TX) nature preserve. Offering safe planned walking/running loops, the start and finish locations are always at a restaurant; this invites walkers/runners to break bread with the devoted group after the walk/run.
All you have to do to join in is to show up at the designated weekly location and look for the group in athletic gear.
