Please note this important race update:

Our Spring Thing 5K, originally scheduled for Saturday, May 1, will now take place on Sunday, May 2, same place (San Antonio State Hospital, 5900 S. Presa San Antonio, 78223) and time (8 am). We are expecting a huge downpour of rain starting tonight, Friday, and leading into Saturday afternoon. There is no rain expected for Sunday, so we hope to see you here for a fun time! 

We’ve worked really hard to put this event on for the local community. There are two things beyond our control, a pandemic AND weather. Our race has been struck with both of these in the past year and we have had to make the necessary decisions to accommodate.

Thank you for understanding. If you have any questions, please Email race director at Jessica.Ruiz@hhs.texas.gov

The Spring Thing 5K Run/Walk will take place on Sunday, May 2 @ 8:00am, 2021! Walk/run this 5K in support of mental health!
