The 40th running of the Bayou City Classic 10K, Texas' oldest 10K race, will take place on Saturday, March 18, 2017 at 8AM. The 5K Fun Run/Walk will start at 8:10AM.

100% of the proceeds are donated to the Houston Parks & Recreation Department to improve our city parks and preserve our trees. This family friendly, 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 $190,000 for the Parks over the previous four years!

NEW THIS YEAR: Both the 10K and the 5K will be chipped-timed. All finishers will receive a high quality technical race shirt with the distinctive Bayou City Classic logo.
