Event description

Description

Join your fellow neighbors and friends for a day (actually more like 10 minutes) of glory, celebration and participation trophies to raise much-needed funds for the Tekesta Park Playground.

The Inaugural Tekesta Park 0.5K will be held, in heats, beginning at 9 am on October 13, 2018 at Tekesta Park. Inspired by the wildly successful Boerne (TX) 0.5K, this will be very fun, tongue-in-cheek event that will lampoon the typical 5K.

Here are the details!

The um, “Run” will start in the field of Tekesta Park, right off of Tekesta Drive. The um, “Race”, will then head to the Tekesta Park playground where you will finish in a blaze of glory.

We hope to have bounce houses and treats on hand, brag to our friends, take selfies to post on social media “I DID IT!!! I’M A FINISHER!! LOOK AT ME!!!” Blu Halo will be on hand to provide beer to all our of-age registered race participants!

GOODIES & FUN STUFF

All finishers will receive:

T-shirts, of course.

Doughnut station at the halfway point for carb-loading and energy.

A Finish Line Beer for our of age registered race participants, courtesy of our friends at Blu Halo.

Water, thanks to the fine folks at 850 CrossFit, to hydrate after a long 500 meters.

A fun Finish Line Selfie Booth, from the fine folks at Practice42.

Individual and group costume contests with prizes. Cool sunglasses, cowboy hats, short shorts, FSU gear, pajamas, you name it. Come dressed for fun!

And more...as we find more fun sponsors!


VIP OPTION

Don’t feel like running? Don’t think you can make it the full 546 yards? Then you should be a VIP.

For an additional $20, you don’t even have to run! How awesome is that?!

You will still receive the race goodie bag ...and you don’t even have to work for it!


GRAND MARSHAL

For a cool $200, we will give you a ride in a golf cart to the finish line. Our Grand Marshals will lead the racers to victory...without having to work up a sweat! We limit this option to 2 grand marshals per heat. We don’t want to crowd the vehicle...er...golf cart!


COSTUME CONTEST

Wear your best costume as a group...or on your own! We will host a costume contest and announce winners at the end of the event. Prizes will be awarded.


VOLUNTEERS

Yes, we need them! We will have a sign-up form on our website.

Please pass the word to your friends. And we’ll gladly put your high schooler to work too!
