By recommendation of the CDC, local and state health officials, and community leaders to cancel any event with 10 or more people scheduled within the next 8 weeks we are announcing our official cancellation of the race.  As this was our inaugural race we are very sad to have to make this decision, but we have the best interests of our community who wholeheartedly supports us in mind.  We humbly ask in these times of uncertainty for arts organizations like ours you consider allowing your entry fee to be a donation to Victoria Ballet Theatre.  Again, we thank you for your support and look forward to hosting this event next season! 

We wish everyone health and safety during this time.

The Tutus & Tennis Shoes run is a fundraiser for the Victoria Ballet Theatre. Proceeds from this event will be used to involve and enrich Victoria and surrounding communities with outstanding performances of dance and innovative educational opportunities.

Runners (or walkers) of all experience are invited to participate.  This will be a FUN event for everyone! Kids are welcome to participate!!

The Tutus & Tennis Shoes run will be chip-timed for those who like to know their time (5K/ 10K); however, if you’d rather not know your time, you don’t have to follow the results.

The route will take you around historic downtown Victoria, Texas. The roads around historic downtown will be blocked for the safety of the runners.
At the completion of the race there will be a VIP Brunch in beautiful DeLeon Plaza.

There will be a costume contest before the event at 8:30 am where judges will vote on their favorite costumes! Don’t worry, you don’t have to dress up if you don’t want to.

Victoria Ballet Theatre board members, dancers, parents and volunteers will be along the route to guide the runners, cheer them on, and hand out water at water stations.
We are hoping to have a safe, fun run for all of our participants!

Medals for the top three male and top three female finishers in each age bracket will be awarded!
