Running For the Arts is a fantastic family-friendly event!   The race consists of a competitive 5K run and a non-competitive 5K run/walk for all ages.  The competitive 5K runners are broken down into divisions based on age and will be chip-timed.

Proceeds from Running For The Arts directly benefits the Spring Branch Independent School District’s ARTS Partners Program and the SBISD Health Fitness Program. The ARTS Partners Program provides cultural art experiences for all SBISD students such as funding field trips that allow them to experience performances and exhibitions by premier arts organizations, many for the first time.  A portion of the proceeds also benefits the Health Fitness Teachers Association, whose members help with the event, to sponsor scholarships, professional development and community awareness programs.
