El Grito Run 5K
The annual El Grito Run commemorates Grito de Dolores, the 1810 pronouncement of Mexican independence from Spain. To celebrate this true Mexican Independence Day and promote healthy lifestyles, the organizers challenge participants to one of two races—a 1-mile walk or a 5-kilometer run/walk. Both courses wind through Mission Concepción Park along trails that hug the San Antonio River. The chip-timed events yield finisher's medals for everyone and awards in 14 different categories, which the recipients can celebrate at an after party with live mariachi music.
