The race will be held -- rain or shine -- on May 20, 2017, at the beautiful Birdville High stadium (a.k.a. the FAAC). Address: 9200 Mid Cities Blvd, North Richland Hills, Texas 76180. The 1-mile fun run starts at 8:00am, followed by the 5k at 8:30am. We recommend arriving by 7:30am to join in the pre-race activities. All race proceeds benefit The LV Project, a 501(c)(3) organization.
Just click the "register" button at the top of this page to sign up online. If you'd rather go old school and register offline (via paper), just download the registration form from the "Register" page, complete it, and mail it to us with your payment. Online registration closes at midnight, May 19. Race day registration is available, too.
Absolutely. Running with your pals is always a blast! Last year, there were more than 30 teams who ran the Honor Connor. You only need five people to create a team, and team members save 10% on registration fees. You can create or join your team when you register. Team registration closes on May 17 at midnight and the largest team will be given an award on race day.
If you sign up by May 8, you'll save. The 1-mile early bird rate is $20, then $25, then $30 on race day. The 5k early bird rate is $25, then $30, then $35 on race day. Kids 8 and under run free, but still need to register. T-shirts for the kiddos can be purchased separately for $10. If you can't make it to the race and want to run remotely, your rate is $35. We'll mail your race packet to you. Last but not least, if you sign up with a team, you'll get a 10% discount.
All 5k runners are timed using the highly reliable ChronoTrack B-tag system, which comes attached to your race bib. The 1 mile fun run is not timed. The course is both USATF certified and the race is USATF sanctioned. It's a scenic, mostly flat, route that winds around tree-lined lake trails. Perfect for runners and walkers alike.
Packet pickup is hosted at Academy Sports + Outdoors in North Richland Hills, from 11am - 7pm, May 18 and 19. We'll do our best to accommodate all t-shirt size requests, but recommend getting there early to get your preferred size. If you signed up with a team, your team leader will be picking up your packet for you. Race day packet pickup is also available (but arrive early!).
You'll enter from Precinct Line and park in the Birdville High stadium parking lot. NOTE! The entry to the parking lot from Mid-cities Blvd will be closed to accommodate the run route. You'll need to arrive from Precinct Line on the east side of the stadium (the entrance right across from Lowe's).
You bet! The Honor Connor is a dog- and kid-friendly race. We have lots of both. The only request is that you're considerate of other runners and line up toward the middle / back of the pack. That way the faster runners won't have to dodge Fido or the little one. So yeah, dogs and strollers are most welcome. Dogs in strollers? Well sure. That, too. Why not.
Yes yes yes! Please and thank you. We could not pull this race off without the awesome help of our volunteers. If you're interested in helping out, just click the Volunteer link at the top. All volunteers receive an official Honor Connor 5k and Smile Mile staff shirt, not to mention our unending gratitude.
GIVE SOME BUOYANCY. Our goal is to help a lot of people LiVe buoyantly in the summer of '17. This year, when you add a Connor-inspired #ORIGINALITY t-shirt to your registration, The LV Project will donate a life vest in your name.
