6th Annual Trinity River Levee Run
After months of rain and snow, there was a collective sigh of relief and anticipation at 5:00 p.m. on March 5, the day before the 6th Annual Trinity River Levee Run. It was at that time, that race promoters got the clearance to go forward with the standard parking plan for the event and that the levee ramps and the race route was as ready as it could be after so much water and mud.
The morning of the race dawned with some clouds but the sun was coming up and the promise of a warm sunny day lay ahead. T-shirts of all colors began appearing at Trammell Crow Park as well as the uniforms of Dallas Fire Rescue and Dallas Police recruits and officers who would be running in the Glenn Carter Safety Challenge.
It is difficult to thank all the sponsors and supporters of an event of this size. Heartfelt thanks go out to the promoters: the Trinity Commons Foundation, the Dallas Running Club, Luke’s Locker, and the City of Dallas.
The race is honored and extremely grateful to showcase a group of dedicated returning sponsors: Bank of America, Ben E. Keith, Coca Cola, Time Warner, Kroger, and Hooters. Additional sponsors include Fuel City, the United States Marine Corps and Williams Brothers Construction Company, Inc.
The giveaways were provided by: Barneys New York in NorthPark, Dallas Museum of Art, Dr. Delphinium Design and Floral on Lover’s Lane, the Hilton Anatole Hotel; St. Bernard Sports, Texas Rangers Baseball, the Troy Aikman Foundation, and Y. O. Restaurant in the West End Marketplace.
