About This Event


For their senior projects, Bradley Davis, Jonah Barton, and James Ayers invite you to join us for a morning run or walk in the country surrounding Lovejoy High School in Lucas, TX, just east of Allen, TX.

The 1K Fun Run will start at 8:00 AM, followed by the 5K at 8:30 AM.

Our certified 5K course is a fast course and takes you through scenic countryside that includes a pond and open grassy areas.
Or, if you prefer, you can choose our 1K Fun Run.

The 5K will be chip-timed by Chip-2-Chip Race Timing.

Both the 1K Fun Run and the 5K Race begin and end behind the courtyard of Lovejoy High School.
Most of the 5K race is a scenic run along Rock Ridge Road.
The 5K is a certified and fast course!

We have taken on the task of continuing the tradition of Running Over Depression to help raise awareness for suicide prevention as well as helping heal those who have lost loved ones to suicide. Last year we donated over $8,000 in profit and are aiming to surpass $10,000 this year.

We will again be teaming up with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP).
