5th Annual RUSH 5K: A Run Uniting SuperHeroes!
This superhero-themed, super fun, family friendly out-and-back race will take place, rain or shine, on the flat and fast Katy Trail on Saturday, May 2, 2015 starting at 9 a.m. in Frontier Park. Fleet Feet will professionally time runners and walkers in the 5K. Post race party to follow includes bounce house for ages 12 and under (weather permitting), DJ with family friendly music, face painting, and other family activities.
This race is a celebration! We want to recognize the everyday superheroes all around us. And when you register for the RUSH Superhero 5K, you can be a hero, too. Proceeds from the race go to help women in our area with overwhelmingly difficult situations in their lives. So join us! Be sure to wear your favorite superhero costume and get ready to have a great time!

NuthinTo5K Training Group
We will conduct 6 one hour training sessions meeting in the Parking lot of the Lewis and Clark Boat House and Nature Center (near the Katy Trail off Boone’s Lick Drive at Frontier Park) starting at the end of March through April. We will do some light stretching and warm ups before hitting the trail for a short training walk/jog/run. We will use the group as an accountability group and a way of slowly increasing our mileage by ½ mile each week prior to the full 5k event on May 2. Training will begin on Tuesday, March 24 at 6:00 p.m. and will wrap up by 7:00 p.m. Any questions? Learn more about this group here.
