Rob Ruhlin Challenge


Rob Ruhlin, an avid runner and founding Board Member of the Dash for the Beads, lived and worked in N. Oak Cliff. He was one of the coolest, nicest, quirkiest, fun-loving and generous guys we knew. He passed away in 2014.

For the Dash’s 10th Anniversary, we’re celebrating Rob’s life by hosting the Rob Ruhlin Challenge. Teams of 2-5 runners may enter the 5k or the 10k race. The team members’ individual race times will be averaged. The 5K and 10K teams with the lowest race times shall be dubbed the Challenge winners and will receive special medals!

Sign up here and we will reach out to you for team names and specifics.

All proceeds from this event benefit Stevens Park Elementary School’s effort to build a new playground.



Your team of 2 to 5 runners competes for the best average time in the race of your choice.
