AND TEXAS GAME WARDEN, JEFF POWELL, STAR OF ANIMAL PLANET'S LONE STAR LAW
When you run the Honor Connor, you'll get: a supported safe course | a comfortable race shirt | a collectible bib number | your race time recorded and published | a drawstring swag bag | and most of all, the opportunity to make a difference through drowning prevention and buoyancy
The race will be held -- rain or shine -- on May 26, 2018, 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 dedicated to buoyancy, on water and in life.
Just click the "register" button at the top of this page to sign up online. Or click here! Race day registration is available, too. (But arrive early to avoid the lines!)
Absolutely. Running with your pals is a blast! Last year, there were more than 40 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 23 at midnight and the largest team will be given an award on race day.
If you sign up by April 30, 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 kids 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. Whoop!
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.
NEW LOCATION FOR 2018! Packet pickup will be at the beautiful NRH Centre, 6000 Hawk Ave, North Richland Hills, TX 76180, from 11am - 7pm, May 24 and 25. We'll do our best to accommodate all t-shirt size requests, but recommend getting there early to get your preferred size. If you've 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 ones. So yeah, dogs and strollers are most welcome. Dogs in strollers? Well sure. That, too. Why not.
Thanks so much for asking. You can volunteer for the 2018 Honor Connor by clicking the "volunteer" link at the top of this site. Thank you!
If you're traveling from out of town for the race, the official Honor Connor Run host hotel is the Hampton Inn & Suites. We reserved a room block at the Hampton Inn, Hurst, TX, less than two (2) miles from the race site. Book by May 4 for the discounted rate.
