In cooperation with the Galveston Island Shrimp Festival (September 27-29), the Shrimp Scamper 5k Fun Run/1K Kid Run is an event for all ages and fitness levels. Join us for a walk, roll, or stroll along Galveston's Seawall in a non-competitive fun run. Skateboards, roller skates, strollers, and bikes are all welcome! The only thing we ask is that you have fun and dress wildly!!
With registration you get an event t-shirt($22 value), Gumbo Cup for the Gumbo Tasting on Saturday 9/28 from 11-3 ($12 Value ), and a surprise token! Registrants 21 years or older will receive a complimentary 5oz Draft Draft of our choice at early packet pick-up only. The event pays for itself, but don't wait too long because prices are going to go up!
The run will start and end at Float Pool and Patio Bar at 29th St. and Seawall and will be followed by a social get together! Afterwards, scamper on down to the Historical Strand District located at 23rd Street and Strand to partake in the Gumbo Stroll! Don't forget to hang on to your tasting cup!!!
NOTE: Due to the costs of preparation and setup, there will be NO REFUNDS for this event. The run will be done rain or shine. In the case of extreme inclement weather, a new run date will be chosen.
