Horse around for a good cause as proceeds will benefit Victory!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT’S A FURLONG AND WHY RUN 7 OF THEM?
One furlong equals 1/8 of a mile. The horse track is one mile (8 furlongs) and that just seems like one furlong too many. Besides, 7 is a lucky number!
WILL WE BE RUNNING AGAINST HORSES?
No horses, just fellow humans. We do plan to have a miniature donkey named “Johnny” to help pace us around the track.
WHAT DOES REGISTRATION COST?
It’s just $39.95 if you register before March 31, 2019. It will cost $49.95 starting on April 1st...that’s no joke!
WHAT DO I GET WHEN I REGISTER?
Each trotter receives admission to Texas Trot 2019, including:
• 7-furlong Fun Run...right on the horse track
• Goodie Bag (Awesome Tee/Sticker, Fantastic Sponsor Promo Items)
• “Participation” Medal to wear to work on Monday!
• After-Party at the Courtyard of Champions (Live Music, Food & Beverages, Outdoor Games, Fancy Hat & Costume Contests) • On-track Starting Gate...great for photos!
• Tons of free parking
WHERE DO I SIGN UP?
Register right here. You’ll need to enter your personal info, shirt size (S,M,L,XL or XXL) and valid credit card information.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
We strongly encourage costumes and/or “fancy hats”. Have fun! Dress up and be somebody! We’ll award a few prizes for best costumes and best fancy hat at the after-party.
AFTER-PARTY? NOW YOU HAVE MY ATTENTION, TELL ME MORE!
Live music, adult bevvies, food trucks, outdoor games (think corn hole, horseshoes, ladder ball, etc.), costume contest, fancy hat contest and more!
CAN I BRING MY DOG ON A LEASH?
No, unfortunately dogs are strictly prohibited. As much as we love seeing folks with their dogs, especially in costumes, a horseracing track with live horses in adjacent barns just isn’t conducive to having the pups running around.
IS IT A FAMILY-FRIENDLY EVENT?
It is. Just know that if you bring a stroller to push, the run is on the dirt track. Also, the after party will have alcoholic beverages being served.
WHY WOULD I DO THIS?
Just for fun. Fun is good!
