Registration is underway for Dallas residents who want to compete in the annual Dallas Golden Games.

The Golden Games are part of the Dallas Park & Recreation Department, Senior Program Division. The Olympic-style competition focuses on Dallas locals who are age 50 and over of all fitness levels. The Golden Games will take place Sept. 18-25.

Some events require additional funds. There is a $20 event fee for cycling since it features 5K, 10K, and 20K road races. Golfers are asked to pay an additional $60 to cover green fees for 18 and 36 holes.

When participating in events requiring a partner for double events, each athlete’s name must appear on the registration form. It is suggested that partners list each other’s names on their forms.
