Today (Saturday) marks the start of the 43rd Annual Blue Bell Fun Run.
The fun run also features a virtual element, allowing runners unable to take part in the in-person event to log their own times between today and Sunday, April 18th.
Runners in the half-marathon will set off at 7:30 a.m., while participants in the 10K will begin at 8:30 a.m. The 5K will follow with start times of 9:30 a.m., 9:45 a.m. and 10 a.m. The Kids’ 1-Mile Run will only be held virtually.
All participants over 2 years old will be asked to wear face coverings while in the staging areas, and can remove them once they have passed the start line and can physically distance themselves from other runners. All volunteers, staff and sponsor representatives will be required to wear a face covering.
Each participant will receive a coupon for a pint of Blue Bell Ice Cream, a commemorative medal, and a t-shirt. Proceeds from the event benefit Brenham High School athletics.
