Aunt Jean’s 2.8-Mile Family Walk & Jog is named after Jean Dixon, aunt to everyone who met her. Aunt Jean was head cheerleader at every race, dressed in seasonal attire, serving after race snacks with a big smile.

Aunt Jean left a big hole but wonderful memories when she passed away at age 90 in 2018.

Coach Andy's 5-Mile Timed Run

Coach Andy’s 5-Mile Run is named in honor of Andy Stewart, everybody’s favorite running coach and race director. Andy’s open arms built the Sugar Land running community and his generous heart supported many charities and causes over the years.

Andy passed away on November 9, 2021, and we will continue to honor his legacy through excellent races and charitable support.

Coach Andy’s 5-Mile Run is chipped timed. A white strip is on the back of your race number bib for bib-tag scoring. Wear your bib chest-high on the front and do not cover or fold your number for accurate timing.
