5K Run to Benefit Catholic Schools in Southeast Texas
Proceeds from this race will fund the unique educational needs of each of the schools in the Diocese of Beaumont.
BEAUMONT, Texas – The Diocese of Beaumont is hosting a Mission Possible 5K to benefit Catholic schools on Saturday, February 5.
The run/walk will begin at 710 Archie Street with a blessing from Bishop Toups, a sanctioned 5k run and post-race celebration.
Proceeds from this race will fund the unique educational needs of each of their schools, according to a press release from the Diocese of Beaumont.
Participants already registered can pick up their packets the morning of the sports day. People who have not yet done so can register the same day but only card payments will be accepted.
Parking can be found in several areas, but is not permitted in the Chancery parking lot. Organizers are encouraging attendees to park before Beaumont police secure the area at 7:30 a.m.
Volunteers are asked to report to the information booth on race day and park at the Chancery on the College Street side. Volunteers are also required to take an environmental safeguard course, which will be checked before the race. You can find this course here in English and Spanish.
The awards ceremony will begin at 10:00 a.m. with a presentation of the t-shirt contest winners from each campus followed by awards for the top runners by age category. Beaumont Police will remove barricades at 10:30 a.m.
A free t-shirt is included with every registration, but the Diocese offers an optional dri-fit short-sleeve t-shirt for an additional $5, while supplies last.
Port-o-potties will be located on the Chancery side, near the vendor tents. Port-o-potties will also be located halfway through the 5K.
