The Dallas Trekkers are hosting this event under the High Five. The High Five Interchange in Dallas, Texas, is a massive five-level freeway interchange at the junction of two major highways; Lyndon B. Johnson Freeway and the Central Expressway. The High Five, with its decorative etchings on precast concrete, along with the visually appealing coloration can be regarded as an enormous work of public art.
The walk routes will be along the Cottonwood Trail, White Rock Creek trail, through interesting neighborhoods and, of course, under the High Five.
Start/Finish point and registration will be at Hamilton Park, 12225 Willowdell Dr, Dallas, TX
START TIME: 8:00-11:00 AM. Must be finished by 2:00 PM.
This is a Volksmarching event and you need to register to get a start card. We request a $3.00 donation to help defray the cost of hosting the event. There will be a 5K and 10K option.
