Celebrating 10 Years of Showcasing Downtown Dallas’ Iconic Architecture with a Million Dollar Goal
2021 marks the 10th running of Dallas’ best 5K! In 2012, we started this race with a goal of raising $1,000,000 in 10 years to benefit the public programming of the Architecture and Design Exchange (AD EX) and the scholarship programs of the Architecture and Design Foundation. To date, we have raised $850,000, which puts our 2021 goal at $150,000. Help us reach that goal by registering, becoming a sponsor, or by making a donation and/or fundraising for the race!
This year’s event once again features a course filled with downtown Dallas’ award winning architecture, a LONG SLEEVE Brooks race shirt designed by a local architect/designer, the fourth and final finisher medal in our skyline series, food trucks, live music, fantastic food samples and treats from our partners and plenty of craft brews. Don’t delay, register today!
Four Year Running Journey
2021 marks the final year of the FFF5K’s four-part finisher medal series which, once complete, builds the iconic Dallas skyline! If you missed any of the previous year’s medals you can purchase them for $10 during the registration process. Don’t worry, we will have a new series launching in 2022 too!
The AD EX, the Architecture and Design Exchange, works to encourage the conversation about why architecture matters in our daily lives. We seek to increase the public's understanding of the power of architecture to enrich our city and our lives through the scholarships, programs, exhibitions and tours that we present. We offer regular walking tours of downtown, exhibitions on the architecture of our region and beyond, film series, discussions, K-12 programs and many other opportunities to get people talking about the power of architecture and design around them. We also support architecture students at the high school and university level with more than $10,000 in scholarships and traveling fellowships annually.
