Registration is now open for Flower Mound’s annual Dorothy’s Dash 5K and Kids K, and this year, participants will be able to choose whether to participate in-person or virtually.

The event honors former Town employee, Dorothy Walkup, who lost her battle with Multiple Sclerosis in 2004, and raises funds to combat the disease, according to a news release from the town of Flower Mound. Those who register for the Virtual Dorothy’s Dash will complete a 5K wherever they would like on the day of the event. Prior to race day, all of these registrants will receive an email with directions to the race’s webpage. Once they have completed their 5K on race day, racers will input their times through the webpage, where results will be displayed for both races independently, according to the town.

This year’s event is scheduled for Nov. 14 at Bakersfield Park, 1201 Duncan Lane. The Kid’s K will begin at 8 a.m. and the 5K run/walk will start at 8:30 a.m. Registration will remain open until Nov. 13. To register for either race and find additional information on sponsorship or vendor opportunities, please visit All racers will receive a Dorothy’s Dash long sleeve shirt with their registration.
