About This Event WELCOME! Your hosts for the event is world famous DJ and ultra marathoner, Kevin Kline. We are holding this wonderful 5k event on Saturday, May 24th at Sugar Land’s Memorial Park.

The course is a USATF certified 5k course and the race has a 1 hr time limit (48 minute/mile pace).    Water& sports drink will be provided along the course.     Finisher medals. Prizes: we have a generous array of prizes and gifts. Prizes will be given to the top male and female times and Masters times, as well as individual age group prizes. One of our fine sponsors, Finish Line Sports, is providing special prizes at the race end to some lucky participants.   Age requirement, must be 10 years old or older on race day to participate. m    Early registration is ONLY $25.  (before april 15th). $30 to May 17th.

Charity Beneficiary: Your participation and entry fees make life better for so many. Money raised from this fun run event will benefit Snowdrop Foundation , a caring group who hosts events across the Houston area to raise funds for the Texas Children's Cancer Center. http://www.snowdropfoundation.org

Walking and Running for Race: The front line is reserved for elite runners. Most are preselected based on having a 6:00 per mile or faster pace and provide a time from a sanctioned event in the past 12 months. Slower runners and walkers are asked to stay to the right and to run/walk no more than 2 abreast as this ensures room for those passing to do so without having to do so from a lane with cars. Safety for all is the primary concern.  Running/walking 3 or more abreast often causes passing runners to run in the traffic lane. This is not safe for anyone! Please be aware and accomodate.

Elite Distance Runners: Please contact the Race Director at jammdirector@yahoo.com if you are have a recent, documented 16-minute or better 5k (male) or  a 17-minute or better 5k (female) as you have earned a comp entry.

Entry Fees: Only $25. (before March 15th). After $35. Race Day $40 Field Limit: 600 entrants. Thanks for your support!!!
