About this Event:
We're back!! After such a phenomenal turnout our first two years, we are so excited to bring you our 3rd Annual Ants in your Pants 5k & kids k! Our race course from 2014 will be ours again, and you're going to love it -- a paved path that winds along Gilleland Creek amongst the trees, provides great shade, and there's no big hills - yay! We're ready for your fast feet to trod upon it!
We are planning even bigger festivities for everyone to enjoy at the start/finish line, conveniently located at Bohl's Park (in 2014 we had bouncy houses and free sno-cones for registrants)! It's going to be awesome -- you don't want to miss out! We also have the option for you to choose to receive a tech (dri-fit) tee or a cotton t-shirt for your race shirt.
Participants may race, run or walk. They will receive an awesome t-shirt and a great race bag full of goodies at packet pick up. The race will be chip timed, so relax and go at your own pace. Enjoy the support from our staff and students along the course, as well as music, post-race food and tons of fun for everyone.
Start times - 8:00am Kids k and 8:30am 5k
The race starts and finishes at Bohl's Park, just down the street from Pflugerville Elementary School. The route is paved and it winds along Gilleland Creek through the shade trees and foilage. It's just beautiful!! Finish in style as you go the last tiny bit on the track at Bohl's Park. Haven't you always wanted to finish a race on a track? Cool, huh?
All proceeds from this race will directly benefit Pflugerville Elementary students and staff through outside recreational improvements and academic support.
Baby joggers and strollers are welcome. Please no pets, rollerblades, bikes or skateboards. Race day registration will be available, but t-shirts are not guaranteed to race day registrants (we will try our best). The Kids k will begin promptly at 8:00am and the 5k at 8:30am, so please arrive early, giving yourself plenty of time to park and get ready to have fun! There will be plenty of fun activities to keep you busy before and after the race. We will have a race photographer, so please check back on our website after the race to see all of the photos of you and your friends (complimentary download available).
