The founders of Running Bayou are so passionate about races, they manage not one, but two different types of event. The first, Coasting the Coast, is a series of 5Ks, 10Ks, half-marathons, and full marathons held in 10 coastal Texas cities. Their courses all followalong seaside roads and culminate in post-race beach parties with stretching clinics led by trainers and saltwater-taffy makers. Their second series, All Systems Glow 5K, take to the streets of major cities including Austin and Houston for a nighttime race for which people dress in glow clothes before cutting loose at a dance party.

For the fifth year running, a forest of masts fills the South Shore Harbour as more than 400 boats beckon sea-salted skippers and land-legged first timers alike. Bay boats, ski boats, sailboats, catamarans, cruisers, and powerboats are all on display—many for sale—and the experience can include skimming across the surface on a 32-foot Yellowtail, a 45-minute jaunt on a sailboat, and a temperature-controlled diving experience for curious landlubbers. To educate audiences, speakers take to the stage, including NASA-honored scientists, marine meteorologists, and Evel Knievel’s former bodyguard and notorious adventurer Bob Bitchin, whose name should not be repeated in polite company.
Hundreds. That's how many stray and abandoned dogs have found families thanks to Houston Shaggy Dog Rescue. And the nonprofit doesn't just place pups in loving foster and adoptive homes—it also gives them veterinary care so that they're vaccinated, sterilized, micro-chipped, and placed on heartworm-prevention medication. One of the ways the organization funds these services is the Shaggy Dog Rescue Fest & 5K. The annual event features a 5K race, a 1-mile pet run, and an after party filled with live music, food trucks, vendors, and plenty of well-behaved rescue dogs on leashes.
Since its inaugural meeting more than 60 years ago, the League City Lions Club has upheld its mission of promoting peace and understanding with volunteer community services. Special events such as carnivals, music festivals, and cook-offs allow the Lions to raise money and resources for local charities such as Leader Dogs for the Blind, Perry YMCA, and the Butler Longhorn Museum. Like the superathlete who singlehandedly powers America's electrical generators, the Lions happily accept volunteers, ever increasing their group of supporters who desire to better their community.
