The Katy Back to School 5k is a chip-timed race along a certified course hosted by the Katy Area Running Club (KARC).  Runners will stage in The Villagio Town Center before toeing the line on Peek Rd.  The out-and-back course is along a beautiful, tree-lined boulevard.  After the race participants and spectators will enjoy a fun filled after-party in The Villagio courtyard where sponsors will offer info and wares and race awards will be presented.

Race awards will be presented to the top three overall finishing men and women and to the top three men and women in each of the following age groups:  19 yrs and younger, 20 - 29, 30 - 39, 40 - 49, 50 - 59, 60 - 69 and 70 and older.

Race proceeds will primarily benefit the Katy Students Run (KSR) program.  KSR focuses on transforming the lives of high school students in the Katy area by developing character and promoting healthy choices through training for the Aramco Houston Half Marathon. Through mentorship, unconditional acceptance KSR empowers youth to set and achieve life-altering goals.
