2017 Race Day
Saturday November 11 2017
Thank you to everyone who came out to race, to volunteer or to spectate our 2016 event! Thank you to everyone who participated in the citizen's walk - what a special day for everyone involved. Big thank you to our Corporate Partners! We could not do this event without each of you and your support for this event and this amazing community! Our 2017 Race Day is set for November 11, 2017 - same place, same time, same course!
Remember back in your high school (or college) glory days when you would lace up the old cross country spikes on Saturday morning and hit the rugged 5k (or 2 mile) course early Saturday morning with your XC teammates?
Or have you ever wanted to experience a different kind of running race aside for the standard run up and down Allen Parkway until your feet want to explode from the pounding on the pavement?
Better yet – do you want to support an awesome community that is making a difference every day in the lives of hundreds of adults with disabilities aged 18 to 77?
If any of this sounds interesting to you then please register for the 2017 Run Brookwood Benefiting the Brookwood Community and brought to you by The Houston Marathon Foundation, CATAPULT, JSC Worldwide and the Brookwood Community Young Professionals. This event will be an actual cross country style race –10k (or a 5k option) of running across the beautiful rolling countryside The Brookwood Community’s 485 acre+ campus in Brookshire, TX (35 miles west of downtown Houston).
But here is the kicker – this race is not about you! No - this race is about the Brookwood Community citizens. In addition to 100% of the proceeds from this race benefiting the community, the residents of Brookwood will also take the course after the 10k XC Championships and race a 5k run/walk championships of their own that they have been diligently training for! If you are participating as a runner in the 10k/5k XC Championships then we ask that you stick around and support the Brookwood citizens as they compete in their 5k race before the XC style race.
Want to contribute even more? Bring an old finisher’s medal from one of your recent races to donate to one of The Brookwood Community residents and hand to them as they finish their race!
This is a very unique style race that should bring out some of Houston’s finest runners and also benefits an awesome organization. The course will be professionally timed and sanctioned.
