Fun Run/Walk

Eighth Annual New Years 5K/10K Fun Run/Walk with a 1K for kids under 12

Sponsored by Friends of Galveston Island State Park. We are again partnering with Fit TRI Run and the race will be timed.


Save the date: Saturday, January 6, 2018

Awards will be given to winners in multiple age groups for the 5K and 10K runs and for the kids’ 1K.  Every participant will receive a performance T-shirt and goodie-bag; in addition, there will be a drawing for door prizes, with winners announced at the finish line. We’ll also provide a light breakfast.

The start-line is situated at the bay-side of the Park, close to Lake Como. See Directions and Park Map. Once in the Park, signs will direct you to the race registration and start area. Park entry fees are waived for the morning of the race.

Check-in (and day-of-the-race registration) begins at 8:15 am.  The 1K starts at 9:00am, followed by the 5K/10K Fun Run at 9:30 am; 5K/10K walkers start shortly after.


Early registration is $25 ($15 for the 1K); after December 1, 2017, registration is $30 ($20 for the 1K). A small service charge will be added if you register using a credit card.

Online – You can use convenient online registration. And since registration is now synchronized with the race timing system, you can register as late as the morning of the race. You’ll also be able to sign up for notifications and receive a video showing you crossing the finish line.

Fit TRI Run – Alternatively, you can register at our partner, Fit TRI Run at 528 23rd St., Galveston.
