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 ninth edition  of A one-Tenth Marathon (ATM) / 1 Mile Run/Walk will engage the trails at beautiful Mike Lewis Park in Grand Prairie, TX on January 2, 2016. It should serve as a not-too-demanding return to road racing after the holiday season of Christmas and New Year’s Day. Of course, the course will be measured correctly and the race will be timed conveniently and accurately. Of course, the age brackets will run the gamut from 6 & under to 85 & over. Of course, the race will be fun & competitive. Of course, there will be a charity beneficiary (Free to Breathe).

Net proceeds from the race will benefit Free to Breathe, -- a partnership of lung cancer survivors, advocates, researchers, healthcare professionals, industry leaders  ensuring that lung cancer survival is the EXPECTATION not the EXCEPTION.
