Run for the House 2018

Saturday, March 24

8 a.m.

Wolf Pen Creek Park, College Station, TX

Run for the House is one of the two annual major fundraisers put on by Faith in Action to support B/CS Habitat for Humanity’s work of building decent and affordable housing for low-income families in the community. This run is fun for runners and walkers of all ages and any fitness level. It is less about how fast you run and more about helping low income families right here in the Bryan College Station area. Each runner will receive a Run for the House t-shirt and a goody bag including a coupon to use at the Habitat Restore at registration.

This year, Run for the House will take place at the Spirit of Texas Festival! The race is a closed course and will start at the Wolf Pen Creek Ampitheater and finish at the Wolf Pen Creek playground. Because of the high number of people expected to attend the Spirit of Texas Festival, we recommend race participants park in the Post Oak Mall parking lot across the street.

After the race, stay for the Spirit of Texas Festival, the free 3 day family fun fest with a World Record Ice Cream Sundae, $10,000 BBQ Cook-Off, and an $11,000 Curbside Smack Down Food Truck Contest. There will be hundreds of vendors for shopping in the Trading Village, dozens of hands on learning opportunities for children in the Idea Village and live MUSIC!!

We look forward to seeing you there!
