Start Training: Registration Now Open for Ninth Annual Carrollton Trails 5K
Lace up your running shoes and start training. Registration is now open for the City of Carrollton’s ninth annual Carrollton Trails 5K to be held Saturday, April 24. The event also includes a 1-mile Fun Run/Walk, so bring the whole family along and don’t forget your canine kids. Dogs do not have to be registered to participate.
This race shows off one of Carrollton’s best assets, the City’s extensive hike and bike trails. Earn your best time as you run along the concrete Blue Trail in the heart of the City’s greenbelt area. The course is downhill and geared toward people of every fitness level.
This year’s race will operate differently to maximize safety while still having fun. With the public’s health and wellness top of mind, the race will be split into six different timeslots: 8 a.m., 8:30 a.m., 9 a.m., 9:30 a.m., 10 a.m., and 10:30 a.m.
Masks and social distancing will be encouraged throughout the event to ensure participants and spectators remain safe. Items such as masks and hand sanitizer will be provided to participants and spectators. Additionally, food items will be pre-packaged.
Awards will be given to the overall male and female runners, and medals will be awarded to the top three finishers in each age category of the 5K competitive run (10 & under, 11-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70 & over).
