Alex’s 5K and Kids' K Run is a fun, family friendly event with a purpose. 100% of the net race profits will go to our designated autism based charities. We are back in 2021 with an in-person event at our usual location, the flat and fast terrain of MacGregor Park. We are also offering a virtual option for those who wish to participate with the same purpose and enthusiasm from afar. Please join us in running to raise funds for autism charities in our community!
RACE PURPOSE: Alex's 5K is a fun, family friendly event that honors the life of Alex Jamrich by promoting autism awareness and raising money for research and services. Alex was autistic and passed away in 2010 at the age of 17. Lara Allen and the Bayou City Road Runners (BCRR) started the race in 2011.
CHARITIES: 100% of the race profits will go to autism-based charities. To date, we have donated almost $162,000 over the life of the race. Our race beneficiaries are Avondale House (Alex's school), the Westview School, and Autism Speaks-Houston More information about our beneficiaries can be obtained through the race website: www.alex5k.com.

It is wheelchair-friendly.
