Saturday, June 1, 2019
Marmion Park – 1800 block of Heights Boulevard 77008
This annual family-friendly event starts and finishes in Marmion Park in the 1800 block of Heights Boulevard, and includes a 10K Run, 5K Run, 5K Walk, and a Kids Fun Run (about 1K).
The USA Track & Field certified course along scenic Heights Boulevard is flat and fast and provides a run with a view. Individual 5K and 10K runners’ times will be tracked with disposable timing chips and conducted by Run Wild Sports Timing. The Kids 1K race will not be timed, nor will the 5K Walk.
The 5K & 10K Runs start at 7:30 AM, the 5K Walk starts at 7:35 AM, and the Kids 1K starts at 8:30 AM.
After 8:00 AM, everyone is invited to the After-Race Party in the Park (always a good time!) which will include entertainment, door prizes, refreshments, and more. Awards will be presented starting around 9:00 AM to the top three males and females in 13 age groups, with all Kids Run participants receiving a medal at the finish line.
The 10K Run is $30, the 5K Run is $25, the 5K Walk is $20, and the Kids 1K is just $10 through April 30. Registration fees increase after April 30.
PACKET PICK-UP and in-person registration for the 2019 Heights Fun Run will be on Thursday, May 30 and Friday, May 31 from 10:00 AM-7:00 PM on both days at the Heights Historic City Hall & Fire Station, 107 West 12th Street, Houston, Texas 77008.
We encourage all registered runners to swing by and pick-up their race bibs and T-shirts on Thursday and Friday as this will help ensure we can start our races on time and provide a smooth and pleasant experience for all on race morning.
