About This Activity

The Women’s Service League of Van Horn is hosting the first Okey Dokey Fun Run/Walk in honor and memory of Mayor Okey D. Lucas.  The event will be held in conjunction with the 2014 Frontier Days on Saturday, June 28, 2014 in Van Horn, Texas.  Proceeds from the event will fund local scholarships given to graduating seniors who are continuing their education at a College, University, or trade school.  There will also be 100 meter races for kids ages 3-13.  

There will be a pancake breakfast during and after the running events for anyone and everyone!  Bring your kids, family, and friends to join in the fun! ($5.00-10.00 per plate).

Event schedule and times

The 5K race course will highlight the new sidewalks that the Texas Department of Transportation installed along Highway 54 at the request of Mayor Lucas and the Town of Van Horn; part of a campaign to make our streets cleaner, prettier, and safer for community members, tourists, and travelers.  The 10K race will also give you a taste of off-road running in the Chihuahuan dessert with breathtaking views of our local red rocks (pre-cambrian sandstone) and the Beach Mountains.  There will be medals for the top 3 finishers in each age group, as well as a medal for the overall male and female finisher in each race.  Ribbons will be awarded to every child participant in the Kids Run.  Each 5K and 10K run participant will receive a goody bag and race t-shirt with their registration.  Prizes will also be raffled off at the conclusion of the event (must be present to win).
