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.


Due to the developing weather situation and flooding roads, and in the interest of the safety of our participants, volunteers and crew, we are canceling the Thursday 9/19 (today's) packet pickup session at Academy Sports. Our number one priority is everyone's safety. Currently, we are planning to continue with the scheduled session for tomorrow, Friday 9/20.

All athletes must have a race bib to run the event. There are no refunds, bib transfers, or deferrals (see Refund Policy for details).

Your race bib is given out at packet pickup (locations, dates, and times listed below). To expedite the packet pickup process, please bring your event confirmation email (or email sent right before the event) with your custom QR/bar code so we can scan you in. A printed copy is not necessary, you can have the QR code on your phone. If you have it on your phone make sure your screen brightness is set to max before getting to the check-in table.  You may pick up multiple packets for family and friends but you must have a copy of their registration QR/bar code.
