    Beautiful cool day for the 2022 event. The event includes an over and back of the Fred Hartman bridge crossing the Houston Ship Channel. This is a well-managed, smaller event. The post-race party at the LaPorte town square is quaint and well supported. The course amenities included well-staffed water and Gatorade stations every 2 miles. Completed this course a couple of times and it never disappoints. A packet pickup in Houston is a bonus.

    If you live in the Houston area… you KNOW we don’t have any elevation, so when a Race Director says let’s run over a bridge it peaks your interest. The 3 race series takes place in September (10K on the Kemah Bridge) October (10K on the Galveston Causeway Bridge) and finishes with the Half over the LaPorte bridge. The medals normally link up in some fashion and they give out a bonus medal if you do all three.
    It’s one of very few races I hope to run every year if scheduling permits. It’s not a race I would travel from out of state for but i would if I was out of town.
