HOW DOES THE RACE MEDAL LOOK?
WHEN IS THE RACE?
The 2018 Bearkat Bolt 5K will be held Sunday, September 30, 2018.
WHERE IS THE RACE?
The 2018 Bearkat Bolt 5K will be held at Sam Houston State University, 819 15th St, Huntsville, TX 77340, in Parking Lot 62. (The address may show Sunrise Apartments in google, but it is now a parking lot.)
WHAT IS YOUR WEATHER POLICY?
We will run Rain or Shine! If it is lightening at the time of start, then we will delay the start for a reasonable time for safety.
WHAT IS A COURSE CUTOFF TIME?
A course cutoff time is not something we "want" to have it's something we "need" and are "required" to have. Due to the strictness of county road usage and approvals on permits we have to make sure we are on and off the roads within certain time allowances. The times listed below are more than reasonable for most runners/walkers to complete the course.
5k (3.1-Miles) Run - Cutoff 9:30AM (1-Hour)
8:30AM Start - This means each runner of the 5k distance must be able to hold a 19:21/per mile walking pace.
WHAT IS NOT ALLOWED?
Baby joggers, baby strollers,skateboards, roller blades, bicycles, or any other wheeled devices are prohibited on the Bearkat Bolt course. Huntsville, TX is a hilly terrain, so for the health and safety of all participants we will not allow these items.
