RACE AROUND THE SQUARE!

Downtown Garland Square
520 W State St.
Garland, TX 75040 

 

Put down the potato chips and strap on those never-before-used athletic shoes. That’s right, underachievers, this one is for you! The City of Garland will host its inaugural Garland Guzzler 0.5K Race on Saturday, September 29th at Downtown Garland Square. That’s no typo, this is a POINT 5K…

546 yards, 500 meters or even 1,638 feet.

If you can make that long, treacherous journey to the fridge for that midnight snack, you can run this race… well, maybe. Join your fellow underachievers for a day full of racing glory and stay for Oktoberfest-themed party afterward with live music, traditional and not so traditional Oktoberfest games and, of course, food and drinks. 

This event is dog-friendly. Bring your best friend with their best costume to help you run across the finish line! 

What are you waiting for? Get up off the couch, brush the Cheetos crumbs from that grease-stained pajama pantssuit of yours, and register for the race today! This is one event that you will not want to miss!
