Bayou City Classic

Proceeds from the Bayou City Classic go toward helping maintain and develop trails for running and walking in our city parks. The trails are available to anyone who lives in or visits Houston looking for a place to exercise or find a green haven away from the hustle and bustle of Houston's big city life. Help preserve the trees! We were able to raise over $30,000 for the Houston Parks & Recreation Department in 2014.


The race takes place in Downtown Houston.The Finish Lines for the two races is on Walker Street by City Hall.


The race distances are 10 kilometers (or 6.2 miles) and 5 kilometers (or 3.1 miles).
