Race Description

We Back the Blue, Red, and Green! 5k/10k is a third annual chip-timed run/walk with the purpose to unite as a community to SALUTE the Service and Sacrifice of the men and women in Blue, Red, and Green who risk their lives in the service of our communities and Nation!


This is a charity run with 100% of proceeds going to the following local charities benefiting Police, Firefighters, and Military personnel:  

   1.  100 Club of San Antonio.  Mission:  Serving the Children of Fallen, Local, State & Federal Law Enforcement & Firefighters.

  2.  Solders' Angels.  Mission:  May No Soldier Go Unloved. 

 

Date/Time:  Saturday, March 16th 2019, 8:00 am race start

Location:  River City Community Church16765 Lookout Road, Selma, TX 78154

 

Virtual Run/Walk - New for 2019:  In 2019 we'll be adding a Virtual Run/Walk option for those interested in supporting this great cause but unable to make it on race day.  As goes for all of the funds that are raised through this annual event, 100% of the proceeds raised through Virtual registrations will be donated to charity.  This is significantly more than most virtual runs that donate as little as $5 per registered runner.  In 2018, We Back the Blue, Red, and Green! 5k/10k donated an average of $19 per every registered participant.  So, when you register for this race (virtual or race day), you know your funds will go to a Great Cause!!!

Great 5k

This was a great 5k great turn out and great weather. The only suggestion I have is to have the water by the finish line as the runners finish the run. Other than that It was great I can't wait until next year.
