THE GARLAND GUZZLER 0.5K RACE IS BACK AGAIN! That's right, you couch potato, sofa spud, barely 15 years removed from your prime athletes, dust off those running or walking shoes and register for the race today! This physically demanding and mentally strenuous race known as the Garland Guzzler 0.5K will be taking place, live and in-person, for its sixth year!  This is a fun race with an event full of games and activities for the whole family, including live music by The Dogensteins (Band Facebook Link).  So as we like to say around here, "Stay for the party, come for the race!"

Don't sweat it Guzzler regulars, there have been some changes due to downtown construction at the square so we will be relocating the race and festivities to the Granville Arts Center Parking Lot located at Granville Arts Center, 300 N 5th St, Garland, TX 75040 this year!

Now you might ask yourself, but what about the SWAG? Will it lag? Don’t worry; we have you covered!  Guzzler participants will get custom race medals, race t-shirts, and some fun goodies too, so the only thing likely to be lagging is your race time.

Now, you may be thinking, this sounds like a blast, but how do I sign up? Registration information and pricing can be found at the top. Select the SIGN-UP button to register. Do not miss out! Space is limited!

Check out our social media for updates as details become available. Costumes are encouraged so share on social media (@playgarland) using #GarlandGuzzler. 

Well, what are you waiting for? Get up off the couch, brush the crumbs off your pajama pants, and register for the race today! This is one event that you will not want to miss!
