Hermann Park Conservancy’s 16th Annual Run in the Park offers a 10K run, 5K run and a 1K Kids’ Run. Runners, joggers and walkers wind through a scenic course below the Park’s historic live oak canopy, through our municipal historic golf course and on the new Bayou Greenways.The run begins and ends at Molly Ann Smith Plaza near the Jones Reflection Pool where family and friends cheer on participants. A post-race party will feature food, drinks, music and more!

The 10K and the 5K run will be chip timed and the overall female and male winners of 7 varying age groups will receive great prizes (Overall Male & Female, 19 & Under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+). The top three female and male winners of the Kids' Run also receive medals. 

If you do not wish to participate in the timed event, please sign up for the walk. You can still run, but you will not receive a timing chip.

All proceeds from Run in the Park benefit Hermann Park Conservancy's stewardship and improvement efforts for one of Houston's most beloved greenspaces.
