2021 HESS HOUSTON CORPORATE 5K Join your co-workers and friends as Houston's “Largest Office Party" COMES BACK this October 19-21 at Memorial Park. Our 5th annual event is scheduled to take place in person once again after last year's successful virtual event. This event promotes the health and wellness of our corporate community and provides a great opportunity to head outside for a fun 5K this October.
All levels of runners and walkers are encouraged to participate for their “Company Team.” If your workplace isn’t involved, you can register on the ‘Memorial Park Conservancy’ team, our charitable beneficiary as an individual and enjoy this one-of-a-kind event. In-Person Schedule Tuesday, October 19th - 4-6:30pm Wednesday October 20th - 4-6:30pm Thursday October 21st 4-6:30pm Virtual Schedule Saturday October 16-Saturday October 23
Our 2021 event will follow a hybrid model of being in person event along with a virtual option. The in-person portion will be spread over a 3 day period with a 3 hour window each day for people to start their run/walk. Safety protocols will be in place for each person's own protection and will be announced at a later date.
We will also continue to offer a virtual option. We're excited about our continued partnership with Medal Dash Virtual Runs to bring you the best possible virtual run experience!
