2020 HESS HOUSTON CORPORATE RUN/WALK GOES VIRTUAL!!! Join your co-workers and friends for Houston's “Largest VIRTUAL Office Party", this October 17-24, 2020. Our 3rd annual event last year at Memorial Park featured 5,000 employee participants from 166 regional companies. This year's event has gone virtual, but still promotes the health and wellness of our corporate community (from your home office) and provides a great opportunity to head outside for a fun, socially distant 5K (and NEW for 2020, a 10K!)
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.
