Johnson High School’s athletic booster club – known as the Jaguar Pride Association (JPA) - will hosts its 5th annual Jag-A-Thon 5k/10k fun walk and run on Saturday, May 17 at the campus. 

Community members and runners of all fitness levels are invited to join Jaguar athletes as they enjoy getting in shape while raising money to support the school’s title-winning athletic programs. In 2013, 548 runners participated, with numbers growing each year.

The race will begin at 8:00 a.m. on the Johnson High School campus, 23203 Bulverde Road, 78259.  Race day registration and packet pick-up will begin at 7:00 a.m.  Race start and sponsor booths will occupy the band pad area located at the back of the Johnson campus toward the sports fields.   The out-and-back course continues on TPC Parkway and is relatively challenging, with hills both ways. The Jag-A-Thon is one of a smaller number of local races this spring offering runners a choice of both 5 and 10K routes.

Participant and spectator parking is free in the student parking lot.  Register online at www.jaguarpride.org by end of day Thursday, May 15, or in person at iRun Texas, 20079 Stone Oak Parkway, Suite 3120. T-shirts guaranteed to those who register by May 1.  Registration is $25/ or $35 day of for 5K; 30/ or $40 day of for 10K.  Children under 10 pay $10 for either.

Split Second Productions and iRun Texas will coordinate chip timing and race logistics, making sure the course is accurately timed and run smoothly. It is a Chronotrack Timed Race, with Overall/Masters Male & Female and top 3 age group winners. 

Packet pick-up is either at iRun Wednesday, May 14 (10 a.m.-7 p.m.) and Thursday, May 15 (10 a.m.-2 p.m.) or at Johnson High School Thursday, May 15 (2-6:30 p.m.)

“The Jag A Thon is the best event to bring both the community and athletes together for two great reasons, fellowship and fundraising,” said Ron Rittimann, Johnson High School Athletic Director.

Cibolo Canyons, a Forestar Community, remains the race’s Title Sponsor. 

The Jag-A-Thon is one of two major fundraisers benefiting Johnson High School athletes and their programs.   Proceeds benefit all Johnson High School athletic programs, providing support such as batting machines, specialized equipment, team uniforms, post-season and travel expenses not covered by the school district.
