Blue Bell Fun Run April 12th

February 1st, 2014 by Pamela Murski

Blue Bell Fun RunStart at Brenham High School and wind your way through scenic and historic Washington County. You’ll take the Trestle Trail through Brenham’s beautiful countryside, by the rolling hills covered in Bluebonnets. You won’t even know how hard you’re working as you cruise by these gorgeous scenic views! So what are you waiting for? Sign up now for the Blue Bell Fun Run. It’s set for April 12th!

It all began back in 1978 to benefit the Brenham High School Athletic Program. You’ll see the high school athletes out serving as volunteers to help support their programs. That includes baseball, track, cross country, volleyball, golf, football, softball, tennis and more. Brenham High School has been among the top 10 high schools in the Lone Star Cup Competition for the past several years.

So here are some race details… You can choose between a 5K or 10K individual or 5K or 10K team. There’s also a kids’ 1-miler! Again, it starts at Brenham High School on FM 2935 off of Loop 577 on the north side of town. The race routes are subject to change. For the teams, five or more make a team and awards will be based on the lowest cumulative total time from the first five runners from that team to finish.

A plaque and medal will go to the top overall male and female in the 5K and 10K, and medals will be awarded to the top three finishers in each age group in the 10K, 5K and Kids’ 1-Mile. Trophies and medals will go to the top 5K and 10K teams, and all participants under age 12 will receive a Participant’s Medal. Organizers will announce all of the top medalists in the Kids’ mile, the top overall male and female winners in the 5K and 10K, the top 5K and 10K teams and the first place winner in each age division. All of the second and third place finishers can pick up their medals at the awards table.

If you’re ready to sign up, register now online. You can do so through Wednesday, April 9 at 11:59 p.m. Try to avoid race day registration as there will be lengthy lines and could delay you in getting to the starting line! You can pick up your packet on Friday, April 11th from 4 to 8 p.m. or on Saturday morning from 6:15 to 7:30 a.m. The Kids’ 1-Mile Run begins at 8 a.m., followed by the 10K at 8:30 and 5K at 8:45 a.m.

Now for the best part. Because Blue Bell Creameries are sponsoring the 36th Annal Blue Bell Fun Run, you can enjoy all the Blue Bell you can eat at the finish line! If that’s not a reason to sign up, we don’t know what is!

As you start planning and training for this fun event, don’t forget to reserve your stay with us at Murski Homestead Bed and Breakfast. Our new outdoor spa will be the perfect place for you to relax after the race!
