Run Houston! University of Houston

Sun September 22, 2019 Houston, TX US 77004 Directions
Due to the closure of the University of Houston Campus based on the historic rainfall and catastrophic flooding from Tropical Storm Imelda, we are sorry to say that the 2019 event must be canceled.  2019 runners - please read more about next steps HERE.


The course is tentative and subject to change. 

For the 2019 event, we will be going back to the course used for the 2017 edition of this race.  The course starts and finishes right in the heart of campus, and travels past some of the most iconic landmarks on the University of Houston main campus.  The start line is right next to the Hilton University of Houston, and the finish line is inside Lynn Eusan Park. The post race party will be held at Lynn Eusan Park near the main stage.

5K runners will make one loop around the course and 10K runners will make two loops before proceeding to the finish line. The Kids 1K course will start and finish in the same location as the 5K/10K race.

Course Cutoff Times

The course cutoff time is 1:30:00 for both the 5k and 10k. Course cutoff times must be strictly adhered to due to the traffic control, campus, and city restrictions.
