Are strollers allowed on the course?
The Blue Bell Fun Run is kid friendly.
Strollers are allowed on the course. We ask that you be considerate of other participants when maneuvering your stroller through the course.
What if I don't want to run? Can I walk?
Yes, you can walk if you don’t want to run. We ask that all participants who plan on walking the course delay their start until after the runners have started.
Are dogs allowed on the course?
The Blue Bell Fun Run is dog friendly.
Dogs must be kept on a leash at all times. And remember that your canine friend needs plenty of water – he doesn’t have the benefit of sweating to cool off like we do! That’s why we have a water station for dogs at the end of the race. Look for it behind the Blue Bell truck.
I can't make it to the race. May I transfer my registration to someone else?
No. Due to volume of registrants and Race Day walkups, we are unable to do transfers.
Can I get a refund?
Refunds are not issued. We hope all registrants are able to participate in the race. Whether you participate in the race or not, please consider your registration fee a donation to , which supports Brenham High School athletics as well as educational, religious, charitable and other non-profit programs and activities that foster the physical health of, and instill good character in, the youth of Washington County, Texas.
Can I replace a member of my team with another?
No on 5K and 10K Team Challenge.
May I switch to a different race?
Yes. On race day, please go to the Run Far trailer and inform the staff of the change.
How many water stations are there?
The 10K course has a water station every mile starting at mile 2.
Is there a bag check for participants?
Yes! We try to make our event as convenient as possible, so a bag check is available.
Are there showers and restrooms available?
Yes! Showers are available for your to clean up before you get back in the car and drive to lunch, your hotel, your home or wherever you go after running and eating delicious Blue Bell Ice Cream!
