Bayou City Classic
The Bayou City Classic 10k is Houston's premier 10k race and walk! The Bayou City Classic 10k has been a Houston tradition for more than 30 years and attracts more than 1000 runners. There is also the Bayou City Classic 5k Fun Run & Walk.
Proceeds from the Bayou City Classic go towards helping maintain and develop trails for running and walking in our city parks.
Both the 10k race and the 5k fun run begin in Downtown Houston. The Post Race Party will be in Hermann Square. The 10k race course is certified by USATF. The 10k course starts and finishes downtown near City Hall with a loop through Downtown and along Allen Parkway. Our 5k course also starts and finishes near City Hall with a loop through Downtown and along portions of Allen Parkway. We have fabulous entertainment all along the course to help you groove along the way.
