The H-E-B Alamo Run Fest (ARF) is San Antonio's BIG, 'down home, home grown' Spring running event! Comprised of four separate events all on the same weekend, the event will be celebrating its 5th Anniversay April 1st & 2nd, 2017! We have a number of special things planned as part of our 5th Anniversary celebration event. Choose from the 'flagship' H-E-B Alamo Half or one of the other great events... the Alamo 10,000, Alamo 5K or the H-E-Buddy Kids Classic. With unique downtown San Antonio routes, all events (except the kids run) start from the beautiful North Plaza of the Alamodome and pass by the historic Alamo and numerous other SA landmarks.
ALL events experience an exhilirating finish INSIDE the Alamodome where the large video walls broadcast your image crossing the finish line with 'wild' announcers, live music and 'stand-out' finisher medals, all the while surrounded by the Run Fest's Finish Line Festival inside the Alamodome. What other event can actually guarantee you great 'great weather' at the finish line?! The 2017 routes (depending on your distance), once finalized is expected to include many scenic and historic landmarks including The Alamo, Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, San Antonio Museum of Art and the Pearl Brewery while crossing the beautiful San Antonio River in numerous locations. The 2015 & 2016 H-E-B Alamo Half included over five and a half miles onto and through Fort Sam Houston and we are currently working (and hoping) the 2017 event will provide the same opportunity for you to experience this beautiful and historic military base! The 2017 routes will be published on our website once they are finalized.
Find out why entrants in every one of the first four ARF event years have had so many great things to say about their experience. The number of entries allowed in each event will be limited for the 2017 edition. Be sure to grab your friends and family and get yourself entered before it fills up!
