DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The Salvation Army of the Dallas-Fort Worth area held its first of many “Most Good” 5K and Obstacle Race Saturday in Dallas.

The event is expected to take place annually, with this year as its first.

The race started at 2 p.m. in Trinity Groves near the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, running through downtown and uptown Dallas, according to a press release.

Competitors could choose to race the more challenging obstacle course, or, for the “more mild-hearted fitness enthusiasts, there will also be a companion 5K run at 7 p.m.”

Among the race course are six obstacle stations, where 125 two-person running teams will be “pushed to the max.”

The obstacles are expected to remain a secret until race time each year, but are focused around one of the Salvation Army’s five themes: Shelter the Homeless, Feed the Hungry, Assist the Elderly, Empower Youth, and Help Disaster Survivors.

Throughout the day, a festival will take place, where the public can enjoy food, music, entertainment for children and more.

The festival area will be open from noon to 10 p.m.

The event raises funds for the Salvation Army.
