My 46th race of 2019 was the Summer Scorcher 5K held on July 20 at Mission County Park in San Antonio, put on by Soler Sports.  Fairly small event with about 200 or so participants.

2019 Race Number 44 Shiner TX Half Moon Holidays 5K

My 44th race of 2019 was the Shiner Half Moon Holidays 5K held on July 6 in Shiner, Texas at Green Dickson Park.  Start and finish area was near the Arthur Ward Pavilion in the park.  This event was part of Shiner’s Half-Moon Holidays annual celebration (July 5- July 6), which included a BBQ cookoff, a parade, youth baseball games, live music, and more.  One of the other participants told me he had heard there were about 90 participants registered for this one, so a nice turn-out for a smaller event.  Beneficiary of this race was one of the local youth athletic groups.

2019 Race Number 43 Let Freedom Run 5K

My 43rd race of 2019 was Let Freedom Run 5K held on July 4.  Put on by Purnell Racing, this event was held in Schertz, Texas.  Starting at 9:15 a..m., participants ran or walked the Schertz 4th of July parade route that started shortly after the run started.  This is a fun event with lots of parade watchers cheering you on as you run or walk along the route. If I remember correctly, this event supported the families of our fallen military and families of wounded warriors.

2019 Race 42 District 9 and District 10 Veterans 5K

My 42nd race of 2019 was the District 9 and District 10 Veteran’s 5K held on June 29 and put on by San Antonio Sports (sanantoniosports.org), with a mission to transform lives in the San Antonio community through the power of sport. Hosts for this event were our District 9 and District 10 City Councilmen and the event had a whole lot of sponsors.  This was a free event held at Virgil Blossom Stadium, and athletics complex of the North East Independent School District (NEISD).  The first 2,000 registrants got chip-timed bibs.   I’m not sure if the event ended up having 2,000 there on race day, but there sure were a lot of people in attendance, as these free council district events are quite popular.
