If you're a fairly serious runner -- few marathons under your belt, maybe even something crazier -- training plans don't often allow for the utterly silly and completely fun. But, that's where Texas summer comes in. This weather? Hard pass. Take on an after-dark glow run at this magical Fourth of July trip through Frisco. Well, what if you're not a "fairly serious runner"? Come on! This type of race feels less like exercise and more like being a kid again. (Plus, there are weenie dog races -- have we mentioned that yet?)

Runners wearing flashing LED lights and bright fluorescent gear will light at the night in this 5K Glow Run. The run begins at 9 p.m.

As a warm-up to the 5k Run, dachshunds will race to earn fantastic doggie prizes in the Dachshund Dash. It's fun to watch and the $10 entry fee benefits the Collin County Animal Shelter.
