Your participation and entry fees make life better for so many. Money raised from this fun run event will benefit Snowdrop Foundation , a caring group who hosts events across the Houston area to raise funds for the Texas Children’s Cancer Center. http://www.snowdropfoundation.org
We try to run a fun event for all. The front line and next three rows are reserved for elite runners who have been preselected and runners with a 6:00 per mile or faster pace who provide a documented time from a sanctioned event in the past 12 months that meets this criterion.
Slower runners and walkers are asked to run/walk no more than 2 abreast. Running/walking 3 abreast often causes passing runners to occasionally have to run in the traffic lane. This is not safe for anyone. Thus, those participating at 3 across will receive a warning with 2-minute penalty for the first offense. Disqualification penalty for the second offense!
Sorry, there are NO refunds, NO deferrals, and NO transfer of entry.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a 12′ by 12′ space for your team tent near the finish line. All tents must be fully set up by 6:00 am. See Jeff Howard or Sam Hulse of Texas Running Company.
