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 Bunny Boogie (BBG) was born as – and remains – an in-your-face alternative to local charity 5K’s with exorbitant entry fees. On the same morning as the BBG, there will be other 5K’s in North Texas – some of them charging fees as high as $30 and more. The BBG, charges $15 (of course, with no complimentary T-shirts, but do you really need more race T-shirts?). It’s your choice; it’s your money…

Net proceeds from the race will benefit Meals On Wheels, promoting “the dignity and independence of the disabled, the elderly and other homebound persons by delivering nutritious meals and coordinating needed services.”  So, on the eve of the holiest & happiest day of the Christian year – Easter – with its gift of spiritual rebirth,  restoration & sustenance, this race tries to provide for the physical wellness & sustenance of some in our midst.
