Excluding that trolley, the best way to enjoy what's left of the Uptown neighborhood ambience is the 18th annual Uptown Run and Trolley Walk. The event features a race or fun run for everyone: Elsie's Kids K for children, a 5-mile and 5K run for serious and a-little-bit-less-than-serious runners, the Trolley Walk for walkers and the Special Olympics Run honoring the athletes who benefit from the day's proceeds. Making its debut at the Uptown Run this year is the Quick Invitational featuring an international assortment of male and female runners vying to set a new world record in the 8K race. The Quick Invitational course is a spectator-friendly loop along Woodall Rodgers and Ross Avenue designed to match the Crazy Eights course in elevation differences and number of turns. Whatever the race results, we bet Dallas wins for number of luxury residences on the course.
