About this event

Join us for the 18 th Annual Run For The Children 10K/5K/1K Fun Run, April 22, 2023 in Graham, Texas. The common start/finish line is at the downtown square, the largest courthouse square in the country.

The Run takes place in April to coincide with Child Abuse Awareness Month. Proceeds go to Virginia s House-Dr. Goodall s House, which serves children and families who are victims of abuse. Virginia s House provides service to Young, Stephens, and Throckmorton Counties.

The 10K and 5K courses are USATF certified and will take you through the heart of the downtown square past the old Courthouse arch and around the town. The 1K Fun Run course will circle around the inside of the Courthouse Square.

While the salt works were the stepping stones for establishing Graham, Texas, in 1877 Graham was the birthplace of the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association. Come explore our charming town filled with rich history and culture, boutiques, and restaurants in the lush North Texas Hill Country.

After the Run, head to Fireman's Park for the 10th Annual Fun in the Sun - Remembering Wyatt Dale. There will be free life jackets, water slides, games and give-aways.
