Molly Ann Smith Plaza

The Conservancy’s 14th annual Run in the Park offers a 5K run, a 3K walk and a 1K kids’ fun run. Runners and joggers wind through a scenic course below the Park’s historic live oaks. The run begins and ends at Molly Ann Smith Plaza near the Jones Reflection Pool where family and friends cheer on participants. A post-race party features food and treats from Blacksmith, Luby's/Fuddruckers and Shake Shack, music by DJ Mav, drinks from Saint Arnold Brewing Company, and much more!

The 5K run will be chip timed and the overall female and male winners of 7 varying age groups will receive great prizes (Overall Male & Female, 19&Under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+).


Online registration ends at midnight on Thursday, November 8. To register online, click here.

Volunteers are a key part of making HPC events happen! We're looking for volunteers to help with set-up and running the post-race party. We're also in need of run marshalls and help with manning water stations. To learn more about volunteering at Run in the Park, or to sign up, click here.
