About This Activity

The Women’s Service League of Van Horn is hosting the second Okey Dokey Fun Run/Walk in honor and memory of Mayor Okey D. Lucas.  The event will be held in conjunction with the 2015 Jubilee and Frontier Days celebration on Saturday, June 20, 2015 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 be many other fun activities this weekend so bring your family and friends to join in the fun!

Event details and schedule

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; which was part of a campaign to make our streets cleaner, prettier, and safer for community members, tourists, and travelers.  The 5K race will give you a taste of 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.  Each 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).
