San Jacinto Museum of History

Race through HISTORY!  

Thank you to all the runners and walkers who participated in this event!  Times are online: 10K run,   5K run.  And thank you to our sponsors and volunteers, including Sam Rayburn High School JROTC.


Get your exercise in at San Jacinto, at the 11th annual San Jacinto Texas Independence Fun Run/Walk on March 5, 2022.  There will be a 10K run, a 5K run, a 5K walk, and a 1K kids' run, for athletes ages 3 to 12.  Registration can be done online or by contacting Kelli Savage at 281.479.2421 or by email.

In-person and virtual options are available.  In-person races will start near the San Jacinto Monument.  As you make your way through the courses, take in nature as it was in 1836 when soldiers fought on the battlefield for the freedoms we enjoy today. 

Alternatively, virtual participation is an option.  Run at your own pace and time!  All virtual race participants will receive a race packet, which includes a T-shirt, participation medal, swag bag, and more.  When registering, be sure to check Virtual as participant type.  Once registered, run at a location and time of your choice.  Although it is not mandatory, we would love to receive pictures of you on your “race day."  Please share your pictures with us.  Just remember to check off the box for a virtual race when signing up. 

Participation medals provided to all participants, with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place for each running (timed) event.  Strollers and pets on leashes are allowed.
