The Project Graduation 5K and Obstacle Run is a fundraiser to benefit all five Round Rock high schools and their graduating seniors. As our seniors have overcome many obstacles to reach their high school graduation finish line, you can celebrate their achievement by overcoming our family friendly obstacle course run. There will be several fun obstacles like, I’m Tired of School, Light at the End of the Tunnel, College Admission Entanglement, Final Exams, and many more. Each obstacle will have a “Hall Pass” path so you can bypass the obstacle if it looks too tough. The Hall Pass route will be a 5k. Race morning will feature a 5K run/walk (follow the Hall Pass) and obstacle run, Kids’ fun run, sponsor booths, and tons of fun! Challenge your family, friends, and classmates to come out and compete for a good cause.
The Round Rock Express is hosting the 5k & obstacle run at the Dell Diamond. The day will be full of special activities in and around Dell Diamond, so plan on staying around after the race for family fun events.
Project Graduation is an all-night lock-in party held the night of graduation, so seniors have a fun, safe, drug and alcohol free environment for the graduating senior’s last social event together as a class. Proceeds from the race will be split between the participating Project Graduation committees from Cedar Ridge, McNeil, Round Rock, Stony Point and Westwood High Schools.
