Event Description

Everyone says exercise is important, but let's be honest: it's easier said than done. Providers tell their patients that they should exercise, but they often forget to explain something very important -- HOW TO EXERCISE.

Preventive Health Initiative is hosting an event to promote exercise and healthy habits within the Galveston Community. Our goal is to show the community how to effectively and safely start exercising. Come join us for 7 weeks of training, health education, and community support that ends with a virtual 5K.

The event is completely FREE and open to all – students, faculty, employees, friends, and family. There is an option to purchase shirts on our website. Registration includes a bib, a finisher prize (limited to the first 200 participants), and access to post-race festivities. Shirt and Packet pick-up will be held on the UTMB Galveston Campus beginning 3/1/2023 to 3/3/2023. Unfortunately, shirts that cannot be picked-up in person will be recycled 1 week after the event.

Complete your race and bring proof to Smooth Tony's on March 5, 2023, to receive your free post-race treats. Registration and shirt sales close on February 1, 2023. Community events (training, health education) are open to the public. If you'd like to learn more about the race, please visit our website:
