2019 Race Dates
Introducing Runday Funday a new event for the whole family! Let's get our kids out and running! Each month before the start of the White Oak Bayou Run For Wellness FREE 5K, we will host a one-mile race for kids and families. This one-mile race will start and finish before the start of the 5K. You can join us for just the one mile or stay and race the 5K as well. Each race has it's own registration so please register for BOTH races if you want to run both.
The one-mile race is on the same trail as the 5K and is out 1/2 mile and back. This race will also be professionally chip timed so kids and families can see how they progress. As always, if you do not want to be timed you don't need to register. But if you want to be chip timed you MUST register.
Anyone is welcome to participate in this race but it is geared toward children and families.
Parking: Parking is available in the UofH Downtown Bayou Student Lot accessed via Naylor Street. You can also park in the Girard St. parking lot. This is a City of Houston lot and it is free to park on Sundays. The trail is easily accessible via this lot and you will enter the trail behind the starting line.

We are a family friendly event and jogging strollers are allowed. Please be aware that this race is weather dependent. We are a free race that sets up the day of the race.
