If you live locally or decide to come in early and enjoy all that Brenham has to offer, you have until 7 pm to get to the high school at 525 A H Ehrig Dr, Brenham TX and incorporate packet pickup into your Friday evening.

We’re here bright and early for those who aren’t able to pick up packets on Friday.

Most participants do not run in our marathon to win. More important for most runners is their personal finish time and their placement within their gender and age. And of course, the Blue Bell at the finish line.

Our Kid’s Mile has been a favorite for decades. There is no doubt that these kids are running for the ice cream!

Be prepared for some hills on our 10K as well as some beautiful views of wildflowers. Because our number of participants is high, we start the race in heats.
Our 5K is our most popular event. You can run or run/walk this course as you take in the beautiful countryside. Because our number of participants is high, we start the race in heats.
Awards may be picked up by runners at the Awards Table after they cross the Finish Line and results are final! And don’t forget the Blue Bell Ice Cream available to all participants and those who came to cheer them on!

All parking will be at the Washington County Fairgrounds. (see map) There will be a shuttle available to take participants to the packet pick-up area.


The Blue Bell Country Store will be open from 9:00 a.m. to noon on race day so that runners can receive a free scoop of ice cream with presentation of their bibs. The store has unique flavors, as well as some of your favorites.


After participants have received their packets, they may proceed to the T-shirt Station to pick up  t-shirts.
