Annual Lake Houston 10K 5K introduces 1K for kids

September 8, 2018

The ninth annual Lake Houston 10K 5K race, may actually be more accurately described as the first-ever Lake Houston 10K 5K 1K.

The Chamber decided to partner with Humble ISD to get elementary students involved in the new 1K race this year.

“We have a lot of kids that do run in the race, so we thought adding a special run for them would be a way to get even more kids and family out there,” said Chris O’Dell, vice president of the Lake Houston Chamber.

The Lake Houston Area Chamber of Commerce invites people of all ages to register for the 2018 Lake Houston 10K 5K race, presented by Serna Insurance, which is scheduled to take place at Kings Harbor on Oct. 18.

The Lake Houston 10K 5K is a sanctioned race with international draw. Participants range from competitive runners to casual walkers.

“It’s a sanctioned race, but also a health and wellness event,” O’Dell said. “It also showcases the vibrancy of our area as a place people work, live and play.”

The event serves as a fundraiser for the Chamber to continue its programs, events and community initiatives.

In addition to the 1K race, children can enjoy the Kids Zone with inflatables, bouncy houses and several kid-oriented booths.

Sponsors will have vendor booths. H-E-B and a few area restaurants will be providing free refreshments to guests.

People can pick up event packets at the Kings Harbor lobby of the parking garage, Serna Insurance, or Divergys. For more information, or to register, visit www.lakehouston10k5k.com.
