About this Event
This event replaces our Lavender Run which was held in June. Our last venue, Miller Creek Lavender, closed down and sadly there are no more Lavender Farms to accomodate an event our size in Blanco. Luckily, we found Wild Seed Farms! Where you will run through acres of blooming wildflowers on this one-of-a-kind, women-only 5k and 10k race! The event starts and finishes at the beautiful Wildseed Farms in Fredericksburg, Texas. The 5k loop winds along flat, well maintained, very gentle, non technical dirt trail through more than 200 acres of bluebonnets, black-eyed susans, poppies and more, along with a scenic stretch beside the Pedernales River. The 10k will cover the loop twice. Bring your camera — you’ll be running through fields of flowers like you’ve never seen. Professional photographers will also be along the course taking photos that will be available for online purchase after the event. At the finish line, enjoy a post-race champagne brunch, wine tasting, free massages, great music and shopping in the awesome Blossoms Boutique and Lantana Nursery. Don’t miss this amazing experience. Visitors from all over the world come to Wildseed Farms to see the magnificent fields — as a race participant, you’ll get to see parts of the farm that are not open to the general public. The 5k course features 2 aid stations, with four stops for 10k participants. Aid stations are manned by handsome male servants in Hawaiian shirts. All runners receive a technical shirt and post-race champagne brunch. Additional guest meals available for $15 each. For more information or to register to go www.runintexas.com/flower or find Run In Texas on Facebook.
We will enforce a 2 Hr cutoff for this event. This is a 19:20/mile for the 10K (6.2 miles) and 38:40/mile for the 5K (3.1 miles).
Any Baby Can of San Antonio -Helping families in need since 1982
Since 1982, Any Baby Can has been a compass for families in need. Providing direction and guidance for families of children with special needs is at the heart of this organization. The impact the birth of a child with special needs has on the family is immense. Instantly, the family’s dreams are altered and their lives are changed forever. The stress has the potential to tear even the strongest families apart.
Any Baby Can believes that the child can be saved without losing the family. Any Baby Can of San Antonio is a non-profit agency and all services are free of charge – regardless of income – to families who have a child birth through 12 years with a chronic illness, disability or developmental delay that live in Bexar County or one of the 18 surrounding counties.
