About This Activity


Come out and participate in the Houston Young Lawyers Foundation 2014 5-K Run/Walk on Saturday, August 23, 2014! This end of the summer race to beat the heat will start at 7:30 am at the Sam Houston Park in downtown Houston. Participants will go out and back along Allen Parkway. Following the event, a great post race party is planned at Sam Houston Park where there will be music, food, drinks, and fun for the whole family!


The race will be chip timed, and the course is USAT&F sanctioned & certified - # TX05052ETM. Prizes will be awarded based on chip time per gender and age groups and per 4 member team. There will also be drawings for some great door prizes. Packet Pick-up will be at Finish Strong Sports located at 6426 Washington Ave., Houston, TX 77007, and will occur only on Friday, August 22 from noon to 2pm and 4pm to 7pm.


New this year is the ability to join or register a 4 person team.  We will give awards to the fastest law firm team and the fastest non-law firm team.  A participant is only allowed to be a member of 1 team.  If registering a law firm team, please name the team after your law firm.  We hope to inspire some serious competition amongst Houston's law firms and other teams!!
