Countdown to Race Day - March 22, 2025


Don't wait! Register today!

In March 2024, we had the largest number of participants in the 45+ year history of the Blue Bell Fun Run. . . EVER!

And although we would love to accommodate so many more, our little town isn’t built to handle it.

That means that for the 2025 run, we will be limiting the number of participants. Register today to guarantee your spot.

2024 Participants by Event

Since 1978

The Blue Bell Fun Run began in 1978 to benefit the Brenham High School Athletic program and did so for many years. Today, the run serves a broader community by fostering the physical health of and instilling good character in the youth of Washington County.

Run for the Youth of Washington County sponsors events like the Blue Bell Fun Run, and conducts and provides charitable and other non-profit programs and activities in Washington County. Brenham High School athletes serve as volunteers for the race.

More than Just the Ice Cream

Where can you get a variety of distances, from a 1-Mile Kids’ run to a Half marathon, AND get Blue Bell Ice Cream at the end of the race? Nowhere but Brenham!

And with our 10K and Half Marathon courses USATF certified, we can help you get qualified for other runs.
