ConocoPhillips Rodeo Run
The 25th annual ConocoPhillips Rodeo Run will take place on Saturday, Feb. 25, 2012. This tradition, which raises scholarship funds for Texas youth, will once again lead the Houston Livestock Show and RodeoTM (HLSR) Parade past thousands of cheering spectators in downtown Houston. Last year, nearly 13,000 participants took part in the 10K and 5K Rodeo Run, raising $360,000 for the HLSR Educational Fund. Since the race began in 1988, the company has raised $2.9 million for the college scholarship fund.
Runners and walkers experience Houston’s only point‐to‐point 10K race and 5K fun run/walk in a festive atmosphere that celebrates the city’s western heritage. A combination of Southern hospitality and generosity, along with a Texas‐sized
post‐race party, makes the run one of the most popular and memorable events in the region. This year an expected 15,000 runners and walkers will participate in the event.
The Rodeo Run is famous for Texas hoopla and a festive atmosphere throughout the entire race course, and this year we’re stepping it up by adding music along the course. This initiative will help draw more runners, walkers & spectators to the event and will help raise a record amount for the HLSR Ed. Fund. We invite you to join in the fun!
The 10K race and 5K fun run/walk racecourses are point-to-point, starting in downtown Houston at the corners of Texas Avenue and Smith Street, and finishing at Minute Maid Park. To ensure everyone’s safety, the 2012 event will kick off with the start of the 10K race followed minutes later by the 5K fun run/walk. Expect plenty of hoopla and large crowds of cheering spectators as participants lead the Houston Livestock Show and RodeoTM parade.
The ConocoPhillips Rodeo Run 10K is sanctioned by USA Track & Field and the Gulf Association of USA Track & Field. 10K race participants are expected to strictly adhere to USA Track & Field operating regulations. The 5K fun run/walk is unsanctioned, noncompetitive, and fun for the whole family!
While the 5K route remains flat along the downtown streets, 10K participants will find a one mile elevated portion of the route as it travels over the Elysian Viaduct north of downtown and a spectacular view of the downtown skyline coming back over the viaduct shortly before the finish at Minute Maid Park.
