Hess Houston Corporate Run 5K
This fall, employees from across Houston will be flocking to Memorial Park to attend the third annual Hess Houston Corporate Run 5K, also known as Houston’s largest office party. The event takes place from October 22-24 along the popular Seymour Lieberman Trail, beginning and ending in the Eastern Glades parking lot at the newest section of the running trail (East Memorial Loop). While this event promotes the health and wellness of Houston’s corporate community, it also provides participants with a great opportunity to give back and head outside for a fun happy hour after the work day ends.
A portion of all registration and sponsorship proceeds will directly benefit Memorial Park Conservancy, which is committed to restoring, preserving and enhancing Memorial Park for the enjoyment of all Houstonians, today and tomorrow. Last year, this event garnered 4,000+ employee participants from nearly 150 regional companies and raised a total of $60,000 for Memorial Park Conservancy.
The Hess Houston Corporate Run 5K will feature the unassigned staggered start again this year. This means participants can select any of the three days that week (Tuesday, Oct. 22-Thursday, Oct. 24) to run or walk the 5K and can choose to start at any time on those days between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. All levels of runners and walkers are encouraged to participate on behalf of their company. If a participant’s workplace is not involved, they can register on the ‘Memorial Park Conservancy’ team as an individual. When participants finish their run or walk, they will have a chance to enjoy complimentary food and refreshments, beer (courtesy of Saint Arnold Brewing Company) and entertainment under a large, post-race hospitality tent.
Over 150 employee teams are expected to participate in the event. Awards for the event will be based on a number of different categories including Fastest Overall Company, Most Employee Participants from a Single Company, Highest Participation Percentage of a Company’s Employee Base and more.
Sponsorship opportunities are available in addition to team participation. The registration fee for a company starter pack is $40 per person. For those who register on the ‘Memorial Park Conservancy’ team or choose general entry with a team minimum of four members, the registration fee is $45 per person.
