April 14th, 2018
The Danish Capital of Texas 5K is a Running race in Danevang, Texas consisting of a Kids Run/Fun Run and 1 Mile and 5K.
The Danish Heritage Preservation Society & Museum will be hosting its annual fund-raiser and 5K Fun Run in the culturally-significant town Danevang, Texas approximately an hour southwest of Houston near the town of El Campo. We are working to enlist participation of the Danish expatriate community and other Danish-born and ask you to join us in the celebration of the Danish contribution to Texas' cultural heritage.
