finisher of Run Puritas 5K and 1mile fun run/walk This annual 5K road race and 1 mile fun run/walk for all ages benefits BPDC’s special events and work in the West Park community housing, senior, and youth services. Run Puritas features Puritas Avenue, of course, and its side streets, winding past bungalows and ranches. Magnolias and tulips should be in their glory along the lesser-known nooks and quiet crannies of West Park, in addition to the new John Marshall High School (JMHS) and W. 143rd’s brick-lined ambiance.

Get a group of 10+ together with mail-in pre-registration and get special team recognition and a $5 discount on each entry off the pre-registration discount!  Who’s got the most neighborhood pride and bring the biggest team?  Will it be a baseball team, a senior group, a church, a particular block, business, family, school or alumni group that brings the most? All proceeds benefit Bellaire-Puritas Development Corporation.   Children, strollers, and leashed pets are welcome.  

The run is dog-friendly!
