Jan. 11, 2019—Filled with exciting live entertainment, two course layouts for running or walking, kids’ activities and other family-friendly endeavors, the sixth annual CFISD Superintendent’s Fun Run and Festival is scheduled for March 2 from 8 to 11 a.m. at the Berry Center (8877 Barker Cypress Road) and Towne Lake Community.
Underwritten by Memorial Hermann Cypress Hospital, the fun-filled community event will again include a 5K run as well as a 1-mile family-friendly walk/run. Both will feature new course layouts, with 5K race participants running through Towne Lake and Lone Star College-CyFair.
The family path will wind through Cy-Fair FCU Stadium.
The fun run will also include vendor booths, food trucks, live entertainment and activities for children.
In addition to a 5K run and 1-mile family-friendly walk/run, Superintendent’s Fun Run and Festival patrons will also be able to enjoy kids’ activities, vendor booths, food trucks and live entertainment.
Proceeds from the Superintendent’s Fun Run and Festival benefit the Cy-Fair Educational Foundation (CFEF), which awards student scholarships and staff development grants.
The fifth annual event held in March 2018 generated a record $100,000 for the CFEF.
Registration will be $20 (non-students) and $15 (students) for the 5K, which includes a t-shirt and timing chip. Registration for the 5K without the t-shirt is $15 (non-students) and $10 (students). Registration for the 1-mile, family-friendly walk/run will be $5 for all ages. Awards will be given by age group and gender for the 5K run. A $10 sleep-in pass is also available for individuals who are not able to attend but would like to still contribute from afar.
The Superintendent’s Century Club will continue, as it gives special recognition to those whose registration total equals or exceeds $100. Club membership will include one reserved parking permit and pin, with 5K race participants also receiving one gold bib. Benefits will be awarded at each $100 increment spent on registration, with a family of three, for example, receiving three gold bibs if the members’ total spending reached $300 or more.
The festival is open to the public and free of charge throughout the duration. Patrons can browse vendor booths and food trucks while also enjoying live performances by student groups as well as a play zone.
