Although this years uh…race will be a little different, we invite you to participate in fun challenges along the way. You can skip, walk backwards or sideways, give us your best silly walk, and don’t forget to dress up in your best costume! We will have plenty of suggestions or you can get creative and invent your own challenge. You send us your videos on our Facebook page @Helotes0.5KChallenge or hashtag #helotespoint5k on your own social media accounts and we will award our favorites in each challenge category! Please keep it safe and socially distant!
Our event will attract underachievers, slackers, couch potatoes, and the exercise-challenged from all over Helotes, San Antonio, the Hill Country, and beyond! We highly suggest all participants of legal age enjoy their favorite Busted Sandal beer before they start and another as soon as they finish. For all minors, we recommend South Side Craft Soda as a replacement. Don’t forget to pack donuts for carb-loading at the halfway point!
And if all this isn’t enough, join us for an incredible live streamed after-party featuring a local artist you can view from the comfort of your own home!
