About Houston Rhythm and Blues Half, Quarter & 5K
The Rhythm and Blues events are an electrifying run where participants race to the rhythm of live bands along a spectator filled course. Runners will never get bored with live music playing at every available spot and spectators cheering them on. Plenty carefully selected Rhythm and Blues Bands from throughout Texas will be strategically positioned to provide an electrifying, festive environment every step of the way.
The fun doesn’t stop there. There will also be a costume contest & prizes for those who dress up to the race’s theme as well as awesome giveaways.
The 5th annual run will start in downtown Houston on February 12, 2017.
Started by Houston running and fitness enthusiasts, we invite you to join us, thousands of runners and spectators, and hundreds of volunteers in supporting Free Shoes for Houston, APHON, and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society with the proceeds of this wonderful event.
This event is about raising the awareness of the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, having fun, and inspiring the population to get moving and get fit.
The event is presented by Finish Strong Sports. Come join us February 12 as Houston commences on its quest to inspire the city to get moving and set the standard for moving to the beat in the streets.
