About

The Step Up for Epilepsy 5K Fun Run & Walk was created to raise epilepsy awareness and is held in November as part of National Epilepsy Awareness Month. The event takes place at Eisenhower Park with the option of enjoying the beautiful scenic views on a 3.1 mile course.  The Step Up for Epilepsy 5K Fun Run & Walk has been designed to fulfill the needs of all participants, with chip timing available to the avid 5K runners, a 1-Mile Fun Run/Walk for those wanting a shorter route, and the opportunity to help the cause without missing a wink of sleep!

ABOUT THE COURSE

Runners will enjoy a breathtaking 3.1 mile competitive chip-timed run through San Antonio’s 2nd Natural Park, Eisenhower Park.  Runners can be both competitive and non-competitive.
