Run for Wellness 5K – George Bush Park

Come join us for a FREE 5K!

Yes, you heard right. It’s free! All paces are accommodated! Want to test your speed, assess where you are with your training, race your buddies or just start running or walking for better health, then come join the Run For Wellness 5K Series.

Pre-registration is required for the race if you want a bib with a chip for an official time.  If you do not want to be timed, you do not need to register.  The trail is not closed for our exclusive use so there will be other users on the trail.  Baby joggers are allowed but we kindly ask that you seed yourself toward the back to allow the runners to pass safely.  Absolutely no dogs, roller blades, skateboards or bicycles in the race.  You will not receive your bib to participate with us if you have a dog, roller blades, skateboard or bicycle!  Since the trail is open to other users please be mindful of this and be aware of your surroundings. No more than 2 abreast on the trail to allow others to pass safely.  We would prefer that you leave your headphones behind but if you must have them please keep them on a low volume or one ear bud in so you can hear others around you.  SAFETY FIRST!!

When you arrive on race day, look for your bib number on the board and go to the bib pick up table to retrieve your bib.  No waiting, no hassle!
