The Fun Run & Festival has something for everyone including a variety of vendor booths, delicious food trucks, student performances, a children's play zone, a 1 mile run, a family path and a 5K Run/Walk! Sign up a team and come join the fun!
The Family Path
The course is great for the whole family, including Rover. Strollers and wagons are also welcome. You may enter the path, from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., which takes you around the lakes of Lone Star College. Visit the turtles and ducks along the way.
Four event souvenir dog tags are provided at packet pick-up for entry to the family path. Have more than four people in your family? Additional dog tags may be added during registration for $3.00 each. Dog tags are not required for strollers and wagons.
An event t-shirt is not provided with the family path registration; however, you may purchase t-shirts during the registration process.
This chip-timed 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. There is one option for a medal race, which starts promptly at 8:00 a.m. Participants arriving after the start of the medal race will have to wait until the next start time to begin the course.
Other race start times are 8:45 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. These races are also timed; however, medals are only awarded for the 8:00 a.m. race. The 5K course is open for all registered 5K runners from 10:15 a.m. until 11:00 a.m., but timing is not available.
For the 8:00 a.m. medal race, medals are awarded to the top three finishers in each age/gender category. Medals will also be awarded to the Overall Student Male, Overall Student Female, Overall Male (18+), Overall Female (18+), Overall Masters Male (40+) and Overall Masters Female (40+).
The award ceremony begins approximately at 10:00 a.m. on the main stage.
*Stollers and pets are permitted on the 5K route. We do ask participants with strollers and pets line up behind runners without strollers and pets. In addition, we ask particpants to clean up after their pets.
A goodie bag, including headphones w/pouch and sponsor information, and an event t-shirt are provided at packet pick-up for 5K registrations. Additional items from the current year will be available to purchase at registration, including souvenir dog tags and additional t-shirts. In addition, current and previous years’ merchandise will be for sale on race day. Look for the merchandise tent!
The 1-Mile Run/Walk
A great run for beginners, recreational runners and kids! This 1-mile, untimed path will take you through the Lone Star College campus. There is one official start time for the 1-mile run at 8:15 a.m.; however, the course remains open to enter through 11:00 a.m.
A goodie bag, including headphones w/pouch and sponsor information is provided at packet pick-up for 1-mile registrations. The 1 mile run does not include an event t-shirt; however, you may purchase one during the registration process.
Stick around after the race and enjoy the event! From food trucks, to a rock climbing wall, to vendor booths, to photo-ops with mascots and superheroes, there is something for everybody! You can also take a tour of the Super Bus, featuring superhero mascots from the high schools, watch performances by school and community groups, listen to the live DJ, spend time in the children’s zone with bounce houses and other attractions, and much more!
We even have a special area to watch your sidekicks get in on the race day fun! They can join the Sidekicks Race and win their own medal! *Sidekicks, up to 4 years old.
What About Dogs?
Dogs are welcome on any of the paths; however, we ask they remain leashed throughout the event. Please clean up after your pooch. There is a booth where water and clean-up bags are available for your furry companions.
Dogs can participate on any of the paths. We do ask if you plan on running the 5K with your dog you line up at the end of the group at the starting line and participate in the 8:45 a.m. or 9:30 a.m. timed races, or run the untimed open course between 10:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.
