Our country’s birthday is coming up soon, and while hot grills and fireworks are the go-to ways to celebrate across the U.S., runners from around Texas will lace up their track shoes. On the Saturday before the 4th of July, you can hit the roads of Houston for the Independence Day 8K.
When and Where
The run will be held on Saturday, June 29. The start and the finish line is located at the Meyerland Plaza, 420 Meyerland Plaza Mall, Houston, Texas, 77096. Runners should arrive at 6:30 that morning to pick up their race bib. The run itself will begin at 7:30 a.m. Registration is $50 per person. There will also be a Kids race starting at 9 a.m. Entry for that event is $15 per child.
The Independence 8k
The track will be flat to facilitate swift movement, but those accustomed to the more common 5k runs should still be prepared to go the extra distance. The scenic circuit will follow Braeswood and lead runners by Brays Bayou, offering great views of the winding watercourse. This will be a chip-timed race, which means you can expect an accurate gauge of your own personal time. After the race, you may stick around to enjoy food and beverages, plus music! You’ll also get a t-shirt and finishers medal.
