FROM THE RACE ORGANIZERS
Started in 1978, this race benefits the Brenham High School Athletic program through an organization called Run for the Youth of Washington County. Brenham High School athletes serve as volunteers for the race to benefit numerous winning athletic programs, including baseball, track, cross country, golf, volleyball, football, basketball, softball, tennis, swimming, and soccer.
The course starts and finishes at Brenham High School on FM 2935 off of Loop 577 on the north side of town in scenic and historic Washington County. The Trestle Trail guides runners down paved, winding roads taking you through Brenham and Washington County\’s beautiful countryside — rolling hills covered in bluebonnets.
It’s fun for kids and adults, novice and expert alike with individual and team events in both the 5K and 10K as well as a Kids’ 1-Mile Run. And for those that desire an even greater challenge, we have added a half marathon route to our already incomarable events day schedule.(The half-marathon course will be open for 3.5 hours).
Even the friends and family that are on hand to support the runners get the Blue Bell Ice Cream!
