Our 5K race is entirely residential, beginning and ending at Smith Park (4000 Greenbrier, University Park, TX). Runners will head out of the park up north on Pickwick toward Northwest Hwy. Then the route will stop just short of the Plaza at Preston Center, heading east via Villanova toward Turtle Creek Dr. Then runners will head south down Turtle Creek toward Caruth Park, where they’ll hit the halfway mark and a hydration station. There is also a porta potty at Caruth Park. The course heads west down Greenbrier (slight incline) back toward Pickwick before making a loop around Hyer Elementary and a final loop around Smith Park.
The Kids 1K shares the same Start/Finish line as the 5K. The course is contained and makes 2 complete laps of the park.
Parking: There is no designated parking area for the race, as the event takes place through a residential neighborhood. If you are local to UP, please walk, do not drive, to the race start in Smith Park. For those commuting to the race, you will not be able to turn east onto Caruth or Greenbrier from Preston Road. Please park on the street anywhere south of Greenbrier Drive (NOT on Greenbrier), or on the streets north of Caruth between Preston and Pickwick.
