Running Around in the Cold for Charity

The 18th annual Too Cold to Hold winter race event will take place from 7 a.m. to noon, February 3, at Norbuck Park at White Rock Lake. Proceeds benefit The Family Place, a Dallas-based family violence shelter nonprofit. The race has been moved this year and the distances changed to a 5K, a 5-miler and a 10-miler, but will have the same course around White Rock Lake, as well as all the after-race festivities, including food trucks.

There will be ways to warm up after the run with heaters, beer, coffee, massages and lots of samples and raffles. The first 1,000 participants will receive a long-sleeved navy technical race shirt and those that pick up their packets at a Run On! store will also receive a warm beanie with the race logo on it.

Family Place is the largest family violence service provider in the Dallas area, reaching out to thousands of victims of family violence each year with award-winning programs that keep women and children safe.
