Joe Nisbett Run celebrating 40 years

Posted by: tdt -


2017 marks the 40th anniversary of the Joe Nisbett fun runs at the XIT Rodeo & Reunion. Both a 1-mile run and 5K are run each year to help raise money for the Dalhart Senior Center.

Nisbett started what was then called the Empty Saddle Run in 1977. In the 1990s the name was changed to the XIT Fun Run. The 5K was the only race that was held up until 2006, when a 1-mile race was added to the slate. Nisbett’s name was added to the race a few years before he passed away in 2014.
