It’s almost time to kick off summer on the right foot by taking your place in the Houston Heights Association’s 32nd Annual Heights Fun Run on Saturday, June 3, 2017.
This annual family-friendly event begins and ends in Marmion Park in the 1800 block of Heights Boulevard, and includes a 5K Run, a 5K Walk and a Kids 1K race and — NEW this year — a 10K race!
The USA Track & Field certified course along scenic Heights Boulevard, will provide a run with a view. Individual 5K and 10K runners’ timing will be tracked with disposable timing chips and conducted by Run Wild Sports Timing. The Kids 1K race will not be timed, nor will walkers.
The 5K Run will start at 7:30 AM, the 5K Walk at 7:35, the 10K Run at 7:40, and the Kids 1K at 8:30.
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 to the top three males and females in 13 age groups, with all Kids Run participants receiving a medal at the finish line.
The 5K Fun Run & Walk is only $25 through May 30, the 10K race is $30, and the Kids 1K race is just $15. Registration fees increase after May 30.

We encourage all registered runners to swing by and pick up their race bibs and T-shirts on Thursday and Friday, this will help ensure that we can start our races on time and provide a smooth and pleasant experience for all on race morning.
