Families with children of all abilities are invited to the 3rd Annual Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands Family Fun Run, presented by Texas Children’s Hospital and Houston Marathon Foundation on Saturday, May 4, 2019 at Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands.

Are you ready to run?


We are very excited to offer a Family Fun Run at our newest community location educating and encouraging Houston-area children and their families to adopt active, healthy lifestyles!

The Family Fun Run at The Woodlands will be a 1 mile course. Participants of all abilities, including those needing walkers and wheelchairs, are welcome. There will not be prizes given for top finishers; all will receive an award for participating! The race will take place rain or shine. For safety reasons, dogs, wagons, bikes, skates and rollerblades are NOT allowed on the race course.

Please note this is a family race, not a kids race. All members of your family must be registered to walk/run together. No children are allowed to participate without an adult over 18 years of age.
