The race is on…Dave Perry-Miller & Associates and the Dallas Arboretum are teaming up for one of the most anticipated and popular races of the year, the 7th annual Tour des Fleurs. On September 21, 2013 the Tour des Fleurs, promises to be one on the most beautiful places to compete, casually stroll or just celebrate the fabulous fall season. The splendid running trails wrapping around White Rock Lake allows this 10K and 20K run to provide the Dallas-Fort Worth community the opportunity to compete in a stunning natural setting. The race will begin and end at the Dallas Arboretum Rutchik Concert Stage and Lawn.
“We felt this was an extraordinary opportunity! Being associated with and supporting Dallas icons like the Dallas Arboretum is essential to our company culture,” said Bud Bush, general manager of Dave Perry-Miller & Associates.
The Tour des Fleurs Race will help jump start the beginning of the Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden. This new educational attraction will set the gold standard for children’s outdoor educational facilities, around the world. The race is also being the opening act of the Dallas Arboretum’s internationally famous Autumn at the Arboretum Festival.
The Dallas Arboretum has enjoyed a long history of providing area residents a remarkable place to exercise under a canopy of fall foliage and crisp seasonal colors. The 66 acres of natural beauty and floral displays on the southeastern shore of White Rock Lake in Dallas features a one-mile fitness trail which attracts many residents for memorizing walks. Because of the scarcity of events in the Dallas-Fort Worth area for half-marathon and marathon runners, the 10K & 20K runs have already proved to be a staple in the fall racing calendar. Marcus Grunewald, the White Rock Marathon Race Director said, “Tour des Fleurs is one of the best races in the Metroplex and has become an annual “must-do” event on the racing circuit.”
