The Resurrection Run is a family event that marries the friendly competitiveness of a 5K/10K road race and an Easter Egg hunt for kids of all ages! Come experience the beauty of Lake Forest Park, run or walk our east-Texas-renowned 5K course or our new 10K course, and fill your Easter basket to the brim as we celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and raise money for local women & children!
Proceeds from the event will benefit Son Shine Lighthouse (http://www.sonshinelighthouse.org/).
Make sure to follow us on Facebook (@ResurrectionRunHenderson) for updates and more information!
Stick around after the race to hunt thousands of Easter Eggs provided by Ebenezer Baptist Church.

Thank you, HPD! There will be at least one water/aid station on the route.
The 1K Dash will stay on concrete trails within the park.
