Run For The Children 2024

Downtown Square • Intersection of 3rd St & Oak St GrahamTX  76450 Organized by Run For The Children 10K/5/1K

About this event

Join us for the 19th Annual Run For The Children 10K/5K/1K Fun Run, April 27, 2024 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 Virginias House-Dr. Goodalls House, which serves children and families who are victims of abuse. Virginias 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 11th Annual Fun in the Sun - Remembering Wyatt Dale. There will be water safety awareness information, free life jackets, water slides, games, give-aways, and a fishing contest.
