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.
This program is designed for any level of runner, from beginner to expert. While we are a stroller and baby friendly running group, this club is open to all moms and women in any stage of life. You'll have a certified FIT4MOM Run Coach who will teach you about the fundamentals of running including running gear, running form, injury prevention, pace and more, all in an encouraging atmosphere.
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.
