Register today and start your training for the 4th Annual Run for the Heights, a 5K Run/Walk, Kids’ Fun Run, and Health Fair, to be held at 8 a.m. on Saturday, February 22, 2014, at Tuscany Heights Elementary, a Texas Exemplary School.

Last year over 1,000 people from the San Antonio community participated in Run for the Heights. This year promises to offer participants and spectators another fun and exciting morning of health and wellness!

Opening ceremony begins at 8 a.m. and the Kids’ Fun Run blasts off at 8:05 am. The chip-timed 5K follows at 8:30 a.m. and offers runners and walkers a challenging and hilly course that winds through the neighboring streets. 5K runners brought their best last year with winning times of 16:43 (5:24 pace) for our top male, Japheth Ng’Ojoy, and 18:43 (6:02 pace) for our top female, Lisa Welsh. This year promises to be just as exciting with awesome awards for all age categories. See past Race Results and Awards to learn more.

Run for the Heights is truly an event for all ages. In addition to the races, there will be fitness demonstrations, a Sponsor Expo, and a Health Fair. These activities are open to the community from 8:30 – 10:30 a.m. One of the key sponsors, North Central Baptist Hospital, will offer free screenings of Blood Pressure, Body Mass Index, Glucose, and Cholesterol. In addition, there will be B-12, B-Complex, and Vitamin C shots available at the Health Fair for a small fee.

It is $25 for regular registration. Click here for more information.
