A great cause, a historic venue and heroic sponsors are what makes this event truly outstanding for all participants. Running in the footsteps of some of our Texas heroes like Sam Houston, Deaf Smith, and Juan Sequin will take you back in time to the historic victory that last only 18 minutes. Everyone, including the kids who sprinted and stumbled through the 1K fun run had a great time last year and many of them shared with us how special this event was.
