Bayou City Classic 10k
INAUGURAL BAYOU CITY CLASSIC AMBASSADOR PROGRAM
MEMBERS OF THE INAUGURAL CLASS OF BAYOU CITY CLASSIC RACE AMBASSADORS AT THE 2023 EVENT!
The Bayou City Classic 10K & 5K is the only race owned and organized by the volunteers of HARRA. We launched our race ambassador program for the 2023 event that was held March 4, 2023. Through a competitive process, 18 individuals were selected to represent the race and help spread the word through social media, personal connections with the running community, and organized group runs. Ambassadors also participated in popup runs together with our presenting sponsor lululemon. Their collective efforts brought new energy and helped introduce new participants to our race, which we argue is the best running event in town!
THE 2023 BAYOU CITY CLASSIC AMBASSADORS:
Georgine Abeyta, Judith Albarran, Sarah Alfaro, Jenn Antonik, Rodel Allen Enderez, Grace Enriquez, Frank Gibbons, Hayden Lightfoot, Rudy Lopez, Ellie Minjarez, Caro Muriel, Julie Nguyen, Pattie Pena, Mimi Robertson, Duval Ruiz, Fela Sandoval, Sophie Schott, Karina Yonekawa-Blest

About the 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 40 years and attracts more than 2,000 runners, walkers, and volunteers each year. The Bayou City Classic 5k Fun Run & Walk was added in 2012 for more family fun! The event also includes our signature "centipede" contests.
The Bayou City Classic is a family-friendly, all-inclusive event. We have recognized athletes in our Wheel Chair Division for many years and welcome all challenged athletes to join us. We invite EVERYONE to participate. Terrific post race party! Family Friendly Fun!
Why we put on this event:
Proceeds from the Bayou City Classic go toward helping maintain and develop trails for running and walking in our city parks. The trails are available to anyone who lives in or visits Houston looking for a place to exercise or find a green haven away from the hustle and bustle of Houston's big city life. Help preserve the trees! We have donated over $220,000 for the Parks over the past eight years alone to the Houston Parks & Recreation Department.
