Looking to celebrate Texas’ natural beauty? Attend a brand-new, family-friendly event away from the hustle and bustle of the city: Trinity Falls Trail Day 5K. The inaugural event will be held on National Trails Day, which is the first Saturday in June, and aims to bring the local community together to race and enjoy the outdoors.

The public can gather at The Lodge at Trinity Falls, located at 105 Parkland Crescent, McKinney, for a day of fun in the sun on June 3.

The scenic race route will take participants through the beautiful master-planned community of Trinity Falls and its 350-acre natural park, which features miles of winding, wooded river frontage where families explore and become one with nature.

The event is family-friendly and there are cash prizes for first, second and third place in the races as well as a first place “stroller strider prize” for 5K participants who are racing while pushing a stroller across the finish line.

In addition to a 5K, attendees can also check out local outdoors, recreation and fitness vendors, a disc golf demonstration, music, photo-ops, a ladybug release and food trucks on-site to purchase food and drink.

Here are the event details:
  • The event will take place on Saturday, June 3 from 8-11am. The 5k begins at 8am.
