Description

Join your co-workers and friends for Houston's “Largest Office Party" at Memorial Park. This event promotes the health and fitness of our corporate community and provides a great opportunity to network with fellow Houstonians. 

The race is one of a kind in Houston and around the country featuring an unassigned staggered start. The 5K main loop course will remain open at Memorial Park over a four day period from October 23-26, 2017. Just select one day that week when you'd like to run or walk and then show up anytime that day between 4-8pm. Don't worry about being late in the Houston traffic or getting stuck in a meeting that runs long. YOU CHOOSE what day and time fits best with your schedule!

No matter which of the four days you choose to sign up, you can enjoy refreshments afterwards in our hospitality tent along with the chance to network with the rest of the Houston corporate community.
