Join your co-workers and friends for Houston's “Largest Office Party" at Memorial Park, this October 20-22, 2020. Our 3rd annual event last year featured 5,000 employee participants from 166 regional companies. This event promotes the health and wellness of our corporate community and provides a great opportunity to head outside for a fun happy hour after the work day ends. 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 as an individual and enjoy this one-of-a-kind event. The 5K course is on the main loop trail at Memorial Park and will take place over a three day period, Tuesday-Thursday. Just select one of those event days to run or walk. You can then cross the start line anytime on that day from 4-7pm. Don't worry about being late in the Houston traffic or getting stuck in a meeting that runs long. Afterwards, enjoy complimentary food and a Saint Arnold beer/cider on us in our post-race hospitality village!

The ‘Hess Houston Corporate Run Cares’ program allows participating companies to invite their favorite philanthropic entities/endeavors to event week! The ‘Hess HCR5K Cares’ program arose from our inaugural year in 17', post-Hurricane Harvey, where we invited Houston-area first responders to our post-race village at the time renamed to the ‘Houston Heroes’ area. The generosity has been continued for those first responders each year since, thanks to Bernstein and Hess Corporation continuing the program.

Bernstein Private Wealth Management, with offices in downtown Houston, is supporting first responders from Houston Police and Houston Fire. Bernstein will cover the registration fees for 200 first responders to sign up no cost for the Hess Houston Corporate Run 5K.
