Join your co-workers and friends for Houston's “Largest Office Party" at Memorial Park, this October 22-25, 2018. Our inaugural year featured 2,000+ employee participants from nearly 100 regional companies. This event promotes the health and wellness of our corporate community and provides a great opportunity to head outside for a fun happy hour after the work day ends. All levels of runners and walkers are encouraged to participate for their “Company Team.” If your workplace isn’t involved, you can register on the ‘Memorial Park Conservancy’ team as an individual and enjoy this one-of-a-kind event.
The 5K main loop trail course at Memorial Park will remain open between 4-7pm each day over the four day period. Just select one event day during the week when you'd like to run or walk and then cross the start line anytime during participation hours. Don't worry about being late in the Houston traffic or getting stuck in a meeting that runs long. Afterwards, enjoy complimentary food and a Saint Arnolds beer on us in our post-race tent!
