This is the time of the year when we put on our tights, zip up the jackets and enjoy the cool crisp air as we run by our favorite Christmas lights. Now that all of the marathon training programs are over, we can all have some fun with the winter holiday races. The Jog'r Egg Nog'r 15K/5K is the last big run to burn off fat and make room for a big Christmas dinner.
The exciting downhill start looking over beautiful White Rock Lake at the majestic skyline of Dallas, is an experience you won't forget. Start at the corner of Peavey Road and Van Dyke overlooking downtown Dallas. Finish just down the hill at Norbuck Park.
