Van Horn's Frontier Days Okey Dokey Fun Run-5K and 10K!

The 5K race course will highlight the new sidewalks that the Texas Department of Transportation installed along Highway 54 at the request of Mayor Lucas and the Town of Van Horn; part of a campaign to make our streets cleaner, prettier, and safer for community members, tourists, and travelers.

The 10K race will also give you a taste of off-road running in the Chihuahuan desert with breathtaking views of our local red rocks (pre-cambrian sandstone) and the Beach Mountains.

Proceeds from the event will fund local scholarships given to graduating seniors who are continuing their education at a College, University, or trade school.

Longtime Van Horn Mayor, Okey Lucas.  The races are run in his memory.
 More information about the 5K and 10K are on our Texas Mountain Trail regional calendar, here.

Race Check-in, packet pick-up, and race day registration opens at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 28, 2014 at the El Capitan Hotel.
