About This Event


For their senior projects, Michael O'Brien, Carson Hockersmith and Brett Pedersen 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!
