12th Annual Crape Myrtle Run & Festival

Saturday, September 23, 2017

The 2017 Crape Myrtle Run and Festival, featuring USATF certified 10K and 5K courses and a 1-mile course, is set for Saturday, Sept. 23. The start/finish line for all walkers and runners is located this year at McKinney Boyd High School, 600 North Lake Forest Drive in McKinney. Races begin at 8:00, 8:30 and 8:45 a.m. with check-in and pre-race entertainment at 7 a.m. The festival aspect of the annual event includes activities in “Myrtle Village” both before and after the race. Entertainment in the area includes a petting zoo, face painter, bounce house, photo booth, inflatable obstacle course, music, warm-up exercises, and a great favorite, the Chicken Dance. In a long-established tradition, students from the school with the greatest participation will get to see their coach or principal Kiss a Pig. (“Myrtle” is her name.) In addition, local education reaps benefits when Crape Myrtle Trails Board members return $5 of students’ and parents’ registration fees to participating schools
