The Galveston Causeway, already home to a race called the “Toughest 10 in Galveston,” will be the site of a new 5K run/walk on Mar. 1. The Causeway FunD Run benefits the UTMB School of Health Professions, and offers runners and walkers the opportunity to take in the view from the top of the Causeway without making the ascent twice.
As a 5K, the course runs from the Galveston County Daily News, located on Teichman Road, to the top of the bridge, and then turns around for a downhill stretch before finishing back at The Daily News. Wheelchair racers will start first, at 8:05, followed by the runners at 8:15 and all walkers immediately after that.
