2018 Race 72: Battle of Hillotes 5K, 10K, and Half Marathon

My 72nd race of 2018 was the Battle of Hillotes 5K on October 13.  There was also a half marathon and a 10K.  This race was part of the Alamo Beer series of races – Alamo Beer being the primary sponsor – that were in preparation for the San Antonio Rock n Roll Marathon and Half Marathon coming up in December.   Local race company Scallywompus wat the organizer of this series. Race location was Helotes, Texas, a small and quaint town that borders the city limits of San Antonio.  This is also a VERY hilly town, hence the name of the race.

2018 Race Number 70 Race For Rex 5K

My 70th race of 2018 was The Run For Rex 5K on October 6, starting and finishing at Valero Energy Corporation.   This event raised money for the SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) Foundation to help find a cure.  I never lost a child to SIDS but I can relate to the loss as I lost an infant son many many years ago to a drunk driver.  Any loss of a child for any reason is a real tragedy so this event has personal meaning for me. Please feel free to save/share my report and photos.  Access them via the links below.

2018 Race Number 66: Zero Prostate Cancer 5K

My 66th race of 2018 – and 3rd race of the Sep 14 – Sep 16 weekend – was the Zero Prostate Cancer 5K held at Mission County Park in San Antonio held on Sunday Sep 16.  Start time of 8:15 a.m.  There was supposed to be a 10K too but due to all the ‘fallout rain’ we got from Hurricane Florence activity, all the 10K folks were moved to the 5K as the back end of their course was quite flooded.  Please feel free to save/share my event report and photos located at the links below.
