About This Activity

The 4th Annual Driving Jacks 5K will take place on the beautiful campus of Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas.

Driving Jacks is a 501c(3) non-profit, student volunteer run, designated driver program at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, TX. Driving Jacks provides free, confidential, and non-judgmental safe rides to SFASU students and the Nacogdoches community. Our hours of operation are between 10 p.m. and 3 a.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. To date, Driving Jacks has provided over 20,000 safe rides home!

The Driving Jacks 5K Fun Run is hosted by SFASU Driving Jacks Alumni as a fundraiser benefiting Driving Jacks.

Driving Jacks relies on private donations, fundraisers, and grants to pay for significant expenses such as rental car costs, gas, insurance, and much more. Because of limited funds they cannot always operate enough cars to meet their ever-increasing demand. Furthermore, current fundraising sources will eventually be outweighed by the increasing costs of expenses, potentially placing Driving Jacks' future operations in jeopardy.

We want to ensure their service and responsible choice message will continue well into the future. Additionally, free of financial restraints, Driving Jacks can focus on improving efficiency, and proactively assisting the start-up of other safe-ride programs throughout the USA.

Event details and schedule

Splash Dash!
This year's 5k will be a Splash Dash! Throughout the course there will be Splash Zones, where you can expect super soakers, water balloons, and more! If you would rather focus on the run and stay dry, no worries! We will have designated lanes for those who would prefer to not get splashed. 

*Please Note* We will be keeping an eye on the weather in the days leading up to the event. Should the temperature dip, we will be notifying participants of alternative themes.

Packet Pickup:
Packet pickup will be held on Friday, April 22nd from 4 pm to 9 pm on the third floor of the SFASU Student Center in the Driving Jacks office, room 3.201 or you can pick up your packet the day of the race starting at 7:00 am.

Raffle Tickets
Raffle tickets will be available for $3/1, $5/2, $10/4, $20/10, and you do NOT have to be present to win.  Raffle tickets can be purchased at the race, during registration, or by emailing us at DrivingJacks5K@gmail.com.  The drawing will be held at 11 am once all runners have completed the race.  A person who does not have any raffle tickets entered will draw the tickets. All winners will be called/emailed at that time and their first name, last initial will be added to the website. We will contact then contact the winners on how to pick up the prizes.  Prizes can be picked up in Nacogdoches, Houston or Dallas.

Team Registration Award
The team with the most registrations (Sleep in and Hit Snooze registrations DO count) will receive a cookie cake and have their name on the back of the 2016 shirts. Isn't that a SWEET deal (see what I did there?)?!
