ABOUT THE RUN
Our most recent event, the 2020 Blue Bell Fun Run, was a virtual run for the first time in the event’s long history. With the recent progress made in our country and our community, we are happy to announce that the 2021 Blue Bell Fun Run scheduled for April 10 will allow for a limited number of in-person participants.
Because so many of you enjoyed the virtual option in 2020, we have made it a permanent option for registration.
Another change to be aware of is that the Kids’ 1-Mile Run is only available virtually.
Started in 1978, this race benefits the Brenham High School Athletic program through an organization called Run for the Youth of Washington County. Brenham High School athletes serve as volunteers for the race to benefit numerous winning athletic programs, including baseball, track, cross country, golf, volleyball, football, softball, tennis and more.
The course starts and finishes at Brenham High School on FM 2935 off of Loop 577 on the north side of town in scenic and historic Washington County. The Trestle Trail guides runners down paved, winding roads taking you through Brenham’s beautiful countryside — rolling hills covered in Bluebonnets.
It’s fun for kids and adults alike with individual and team events in both the 5K and 10K. And for those that desire an even greater challenge, a HALF MARATHON route is part of our already event schedule (limited spots available). Even the friends and family that are on hand to support the runners get the Blue Bell Ice Cream!
