Dr. Mark Henry and Cypress-Fairbanks ISD are excited to present the 2nd annual Superintendent Fun Run, Superheroes For Kids! This event will benefit the Cy-Fair Educational Foundation. Click www.thecfef.org for more details on how you can make a difference in the lives of CFISD students through CFEF! This event has something for everyone such as; a live band - Sawdust Road, over 40 vendor booths, delicious food trucks from the community, and a special appearance by TORO and Texans cheerleaders!
This chip-timed, certified 5k course will take you through the Towne Lake neighborhood where you will be met with cheers along the way. Water stations and course support will be provided along the path. Medals will be awarded to the top three finishers in each age category. Medals will also be awarded to the Overall Male, Female, Student, Masters (18+), and Grand Masters (50+). Goodie bag, t-shirt, and event lanyard provided at packet pick-up. Goodie bags include sponsor items and a unique super hero item.
There will be three start times for the 5K Race - 8:00 a.m., 8:30 a.m., and 9:00 a.m. The awards ceremony will begin at approximately 10:15 a.m. Any runners still on the course at the time of the awards ceremony are not eligible to win a medal.
The 1-mile Run
A great run for beginners and recreational runners. This 1-mile path (not timed) will take you through the Lone Star College campus. Completion ribbons will be presented at the end of the run to all participants. Goodie bag provided at packet pick-up. Goodie bags include sponsor items and a unique super hero item.
The official start time for the 1 mile run will be 8:15 a.m.; however, the course will remain open throughout the morning for runners who choose to run at different times, as this is an un-timed event.
Family Walking Path
This course is great for the whole family, including Rover! The path takes you around the lakes of Lone Star College where you can visit the turtles and ducks along the way. This path is pet & stroller friendly! Family registration comes with four (4) event lanyards (Each participant is required to have a lanyard, additional lanyards are $3/ea.). Infants in strollers are not required to wear a lanyard.
Stick around after the race and enjoy samples from Raising Cane's, photo ops with mascots and superheroes, performances by community performing arts groups, bounce houses, rock wall, bungee run, and more! We even have a special area to watch your sidekicks get in on the race day fun! (Sidekicks, up to 4 years old.)
