HYLF Fun Run

Participants, volunteers, donors, sponsors, and friends of the Houston Young Lawyers Foundation 2017 5-K Fun Run/Walk,

Safety of our participants, as well as our volunteers and spectators, is our primary concern on race weekend.


Unfortunately, after talking to our resources at the Mayor’s Office of Special Events, City of Houston, and other local authorities, the decision has been made to CANCEL the HYLF 2017 5-K Fun Run/Walk. Due to current weather conditions, forecasted conditions through race morning, and the risk of flooding throughout the city and especially along Allen Parkway and Buffalo Bayou, as of today at 7:02am, the decision has been made to cancel the event. Because the race is a volunteer organized and a volunteer produced event, the HYLF 2017 5-K Fun Run/Walk will not be rescheduled. We hope that you will join us for our annual event in 2018.


Registration fees and sponsorship donations are non-refundable, but know that all net proceeds benefit Change Happens! and the Houston Young Lawyers Foundation grant recipients. We are grateful for your donation, support of, and commitment to these great and worthy charitable organizations.


As of today at 7:02am, packet pickup will go forward today as planned from 12:00–2:00 pm and 4:00–7:00 pm at Finish Strong Sports (6426 Washington Avenue, Houston, TX 77007) where you can pick up your packet and t-shirt. However, we ask that you use your best judgment in determining whether to venture through the weather conditions to pick up your packet. We will update you if there are any changes to the times and/or availability of packet pickup due to inclement weather.
