53rd ANNUAL
This is the 53rd running of the oldest race in Texas. You can boast on Sunday morning that you ran on the same track as Olympic Medalists Clayton Murphy and Matt Centrowitz and that you finished in the same time as Houston’s premier runners.Run as many RPMs (laps) as you please in 33:20. Pre-LP lbs weigh-in for Clydesdales and Rubens. The race course is around a beautiful 400 meter bouncy synthetic track – no asphalt or concrete or pot holes!  Run at Rice University.

Lane Assignment and Lap Counting
Each entrant is assigned a lane based on the age group of the entrant. Each entrant is responsible for keeping track of their total laps run. The best way is to bring a companion who can keep count from the bleachers. Lap sheets will be provided. Each lap counter must confirm with the runner after the race the number of whole laps run & record the number on the lap sheet.
