Welcome to the 44th Annual Bayou City Classic 10K and 5k Fun Run - VIRTUAL

Run Anywhere, Anytime Between March 13 and March 27, 2021


We are going all virtual again this year, but with renewed purpose and enthusiasm. This is a family-friendly, all-inclusive event. We invite EVERYONE to participate.  Wheelchair/pushrim participants are welcomed and encouraged. 

100% of the net proceeds from the Bayou City Classic are donated to the Houston Parks & Recreation Department to improve our city parks and preserve our trees. This non-profit event is organized by the Houston Area Road Runners Association (HARRA), an all volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to promote running as a competitive sport and a healthful exercise.   The race has donated over $250,000 for the Parks over the previous six years!
