RODEO RUN 10k

The 26th Annual Conoco Phillips Rodeo Run is one of Houston’s largest yearly 10k races held on February 23rd.  It is time to kick off your cowboy boots and do a little more than 2-stepping.  Last year, 15,000 people descended upon downtown Houston for the event.  Recently, the Rodeo Run organizers added a 5k fun run to the schedule.   The 2013 course layout has changed, but it still remains a point-to-point race and not an out-and-back.

It is not too late to be part of the Rodeo run, you can still register in person at Luke's Locker on Wed, Thurs, or Friday.

If you have pre-registered, then please remember your race bib number when you arrive at packet pickup to expedite packet pickup.   You should have received an email on Monday Feb. 18 from the Rodeo Run peeps with your bib number.

PRE-RACE MEETUP Location is at 8:30 A.M. @ Hard Rock Cafe , 502 Texas Street, A couple of blocks from the start.    The 10k starts at 9:20 A.M. and the 5k starts at 9:45 A.M.

Postrace Meetup located at the Meet-me tent for Runner's Clubs after the race.

Lunch at Baba Yega's to keep the discussion going.

I will be wearing a fluorescent shirt, blue shorts, red headband, and wristbands as shown in profile pic.

    Let's do this!!!!

    It is not a short walk from the starting line and finishing line. Parking near the finishing line is best if you get there very early. Half-way between the starting line and finishing line is an option too. Tough call. If you run late or traffic is a mess, then you will have to park near the starting line. No choice

    February 22, 2013

    • Hughy C.

      Thanks for your tips. I will try to get out there as early as possible. I saw the website to find out more detailed parking and "shuttle" information with no luck. What a lame organization.

      February 22, 2013

  • Hughy C.

    I guess y'all park around the start line, and there will be shuttle buses to haul us back to where we started?

    Good description of the course layout:

    Stacey, sorry about your ankle. :( I hope you have a speedy recovery.

    February 19, 2013

  • Stephen

    Sorry about your ankle. Totally Lame! Hopefully in a couple months you can be back 'up and running.' The 27th installment of the Rodeo Run will happen next year, see you then, but hopefully before.........

    February 18, 2013

    • Stacey

      I am very bummed out about it. The cast should be off in 6 week or so. Hope to meet once I get back on the road... :)

    Hi everyone! Unfortunately, I broke my left ankle on Saturday and will not be able to participate in the race. If you know anyone who would like to take my place, please message me!
