Race Info

Important 2016 Announcement

Goat Run Enthusiast:
It is with mixed emotions that we, Seed Effect and Empower One, are postponing The Goat Run for 2016. Thank you for running, walking, sponsoring, racing goats, and volunteering at 5:00 a.m. for the last few years. You made our quirky, fun, Goat-centric event a huge success.
After last year’s Goat Run, we spent a lot of time talking and praying through the future of the event. Through that process, we wrestled with whether we should follow John Elway’s, Seinfeld’s, and even Mark Cuban’s Broadcast.com example and go out on top, or keep the party going. As we go back to our drawing board to re-imagine and re-invent, we are going to pause and not host a Goat Run in 2016.
Thank you, again, for making those days on Flag Pole Hill so much fun, and for helping more South Sudanese meet Jesus, become economically empowered, and go to school. You have already made a significant impact in the newest country in the world. And who knows, perhaps more goats will be in all our futures in a fresh, new form one day …

 2015 Goat Run FAQ

For the chip timing this year, we’re back partnering with:





The Goat Run is a 5K & 10K Run with a 1-Mile Family Walk on April 11, 2015. BUT, here’s the twist: You can form a team to race a real goat on a harness on a course we build on Flag Pole Hill in Dallas immediately after the run and walk. The top 10 fundraising teams get to race the goats.

Plus a bounce house, fun vendors, food trucks, & a photo booth with a real goat and more!

Empower One & Seed Effect

Whose Idea was it to race goats? … And WHY?

The Goat Run supports both Empower One and Seed Effect. Seed Effect and Empower One train, equip, and empower the Sudanese people to transform their lives, families, and entire communities. This transformation takes place through education, training, microloans, and the power of Jesus Christ.

Seed Effect is a Christ-centered, nonprofit microfinance organization. Our mission is to plant the seeds that overcome poverty by providing access to microloans, education, and spiritual discipleship in marginalized communities around the world. In action, Seed Effect serves as a holistic tool to live out the Great Commission alongside the Great Commandment as we empower the poor to know and follow Christ, plug into the local church, and overcome physical poverty.

, Visit Seed Effect

Our focus is on finding, training, mentoring and discipling South (and North) Sudanese. These "Empowered" leaders then can start churches, run schools, work for NGOs, improve farms, and more. Empowered leaders change families who change communities to transform nations.
