29th Annual Houston Heights Fun Run

Presented by Houston Heights Association at Marmion Park

The 29th Annual Houston Heights Fun Run is scheduled for Saturday, June 7, 2014.

Runners take your marks for one of Houston’s most popular small runs — the Houston Heights Association’s 29th Annual Heights Fun Run, to be held on Saturday, June 7, 2014. The fast out-and-back 5K course runs along the beautifully scenic and historic Heights Boulevard.

The race starts and ends at Marmion Park and includes a 5K Fun Run, a 5K Walk and a Kids 1K. Run Wild Sports Timing will conduct the disposable chip timing for the certified 5K course.

The 5K Fun Run starts at 7:30 a.m., the 5K Walk starts at 7:35 a.m. and the Kids 1K starts at 8:30 a.m. Each kid participating in the 1K will receive an award, and each entrant will receive a commemorative 100 percent-cotton T-shirt.

The Post-Race Party will begin at 8 a.m. at Marmion Park, with the awards ceremony scheduled for 9 a.m. In addition to entertainment and door prizes, refreshments, including tacos, fresh fruit, bagels, water, coffee and more will be available.
