The Official Mardi Gras! Galveston 5K is the perfect opportunity to enjoy a leisurely crawl, or an intense run, through Galveston's Historic Strand District & follow it up with a day of great celebrations & libations! The run is 5 kilometers long and will begin between 21st and 22nd on Strand Street. The runners will take a left on 25th street and proceed to Sealy Avenue where they will take another left! The runners will then take a left on 13th street and start their way back! Another left on Market and one more on 19th and you're almost finished! Next, the runners will take a right on Post Office, a right on 24th and FINALLY will finish in front of the beautiful Tremont Hotel! It's going to be a crazy ride, but we cannot wait for this spectacular run route!
