Galveston’s seawall is always a great place for a run or a stroll, and two upcoming events prove that point. On Saturday, Sept. 28, the Shrimp Scamper 5K takes in the views from seawall, and on Friday, Oct. 4, the Walk A Mile In Their Shoes event benefiting the Resource and Crisis Center follows some of the same course.

The Shrimp Scamper gets under way at 9 a.m., as the first event in the Wild Texas Galveston Island Shrimp Festival. The 5K begins on Seawall Boulevard at 28th Street, across from Beerfoot Brewery, and heads west to 50th Street before making a hairpin turn and returning eastward to finish at 28th Street.
