Event details and schedule


[1M @ 8:00 AM; 5K @ 8:30 AM]

Our racing mission continues to be to produce affordable, hedonistically fun & athletically competitive races, that are technically sound (correctly-measured courses with minimum turns and visible distance – mile or Km – markers), that also benefit some charity(-ies) with a populist & gender parity focus – for the average runner/walker (including the novices) and also for the seasoned, serious racer. ***

The sifth edition of A Grace Race 5K / 1 Mile Run/Walk will engage the trails at beautiful Mike Lewis Park in Grand Prairie, TX on August 8, 2015


In a sense, St. Alban’s Episcopal [ 817-264-3083   www.saintalbansarlington.org ] – which currently meets at Theatre Arlington, 305 W. Main St, Arlington, TX 76010 -- is one of the newest parishes in the Fort Worth Diocese of the Episcopal Church. We are a fledgling & vibrant parish who are part of the Episcopal Church of the USA with “a mission to restore all people to unity with God and one another in Christ …and a commitment to a life of prayer; honoring Holy Scripture and participating in true Episcopal worship; and to empowered lay leadership and a return to the emphasis on Christ’s instructions to feed the hungry, clothe the naked and comfort the lonely – a desire to greet one another as brothers and sisters despite differences of race or tribe, status, gender, political allegiances or ethical views and understanding.” One element of a very engaging Outreach Mission (God’s hands in the world) is helping low-income families – kids and parents – at AISD’s Crow Elementary, with supplies and a tutoring & caring presence. One of the latest additions to our lineup of races – A Grace Race 5K/1M – is geared to help in that effort. The race  will be at Grand prairie’s beautiful Mike Lewis Park on August 8, 2015. We invite you to engage those engaged with serving fellow brothers & sisters at this Come join us, have an august marvelous time. See you there.


Net proceeds from the race will benefit Arlington’s St. Alban’s Episcopal Outreach & Mission to our local/global neighbors, in this case, AISD’s Crow Elementary.
