Take part in this great summer 5K race in downtown McKinney. Bring the kids along for the Fun Run. The Melon Dash is conincides with the Chestnut Square Farmers Market and shows off the shady streets of McKinney's historic district.
Runners are greeted at the finish with cool towels and refreshments. The sponsor village is packed with goodies, live music, food and beer. The Farmers Market offers participants even more bounty. The Melon Dash benefits North Texas Cat Rescue.
The 5K race starts at the intersection of Davis and Tennessee on the north edge of the brick line, in Mckinney. This is an out-and-back course, except for a short loop of a few blocks at the turnaround (rather than a U-turn.)
