The event will begin with a family friendly/non-competitive 1K Kids Fun Walk/Run at 8:00am followed by a family friendly 5K Run/Walk at 8:30am at 501 Prairie, Houston, Texas. Post race festivities and activities will be held at Fish Plaza, Wortham Theater Center, Downtown Houston. Registration is available online, and in person. Fees are $25 for the adult 5K, and $10 for the kids 1K, thru September 1st. Fees increase September 2nd to $30 and $13 respectfully. There will also be registration on-site at 7:00 a.m. on the day of the event. Proceeds will go to recovery-based scholarships.
While the race celebrates recovery, its goal is to reach beyond those in recovery to the entire running community. The Founding Sponsors of this event, Santa Maria Hostel and The Council on Recovery, along with this year’s planners, are expanding their outreach efforts to include running clubs and increase the race’s level of legitimacy. As more serious runners become involved, we continue to build our numbers and also help others see the promise of a holistic approach to health in all areas of our lives.
The event financially benefits the Santa Maria Hostel and The Council on Recovery via funds for treatment scholarships for women and men needing treatment for recovery from addictions.
THE EVENT TAKES PLACE RAIN OR SHINE. IN THE EVENT OF SEVERE WEATHER, THE EVENT MAY BE CANCELED. NO REFUNDS – YOUR REGISTRATION IS A DONATION.
Join us for a great 5K!!!! You pick your type of race – electronic chip-timed accuracy for a competitive race pace, or the Family Friendly run/walk/stroll/save energy for the post race party pace! Fast or slow, you will love our post race party with plenty of food and fun for everyone.
The family friendly 1K is designed especially for kids. Of course adults that would rather do a 1K instead of a 5K, are welcome to participate too!!!! Children under 8 years old must be accompanied by an adult (one adult entry is included with each child under 8 years of age – but shirts are only provided for paying participants). The post race party has food, music and entertainment for the entire family! The 1K is a great way to get your kids excited about exercise!
