The Tutus & Tennis Shoes- Run, Walk, Ride, Paddle is a fundraiser for the Victoria Ballet Theatre. Proceeds from this event will be used to involve and enrich Victoria and surrounding communities with outstanding performances of dance and innovative educational opportunities.
Runners (or walkers, riders, and paddlers) of all experience are invited to participate. This will be a FUN event for everyone! Kids are welcome to participate!!
The Tutus & Tennis Shoes run will be chip-timed for those who like to know their time (5K); however, if you’d rather not know your time, you don’t have to follow the results.
The route will take you around beautiful Riverside Park in Victoria, Texas. The roads around the park will be blocked for the safety of the participants. At the completion of the race, there will be a celebratory brunch at the beautiful Pump House Restaurant.
Victoria Ballet Theatre board members, dancers, parents, and volunteers will be along the route to guide the runners, cheer them on, and hand out water at water stations. We are hoping to have a safe, fun event for all of our participants!
Medals for the top three male and top three female 5K finishers in each age bracket will be awarded!
