Event Information

The Monster Mash Run - 5k/10k & Kids K - takes place at the beautiful Karbach brewery located at 2032 Karbach Street in Northwest Houston.

The Monster Mash Run was established in 2008 in Sugar Land, Texas and was moved to Sam Houston Race Park in 2009. In 2015, RA Sports Management relocated the race to the Karbach Brewery in order to provide a new USATF certified route and a new experience for our participants. Since it's a Halloween themed run, most of the runners and families dress up in their favorite costume to enhance the fun.

The 5k/10k have a mass start at 7:30 AM (chip timed) with the kids run starting later in the morning at 9:15 AM. All courses are flat and fast.

All participants will receive a participant t-shirt and a commerative Karbach pint glass. Participants 21 and older will receive two beer tickets. Kids K participants will receive a tshirt and a trick-o-treat bucket for the candy station at the halfway point on the kids run. Overall winner (top 3 women, top 3 men in 5K and 10K) and top 3 costumes will be awarded after the race.

Bib Pickup Information

During registration you may choose to have your bib mailed to your address for $5.

You may also pick up your bib at a bib pickup the week before the race (Date and Location TBA)

COURSE CUTOFF TIMES

What is a course cutoff time?

A course cutoff time is not something we "want" to have it's something we "need" and are "required" to have. Due to the strictness of county road usage and approvals on permits we have to make sure we are on and off the roads within certain time allowances. The times listed below are more than resonable for most runners/walkers to complete the course.

5k (3.1-Miles) Run - Cutoff 8:30AM (1-Hour)
7:30AM Start - That means each runner of the 5k distance must be able to hold a 19:21/per mile walking pace.

10k (6.2-Miles) Run - Cutoff - 9:30AM (2-Hours)
7:30AM Start - That means each runner of the 10k distance must be able to hold a 19:21/per mile walking pace.

Kids K Run - Cutoff - None

The kids k is a short distance. They may take as long as they need.

Race Beneficiary

RA Sports Management has partnered with Houston runner Nestor Enriquez to support his 40 for 40 initiative to benefit Houston's CHILDREN AT RISK for our 2016 Houston races.

40 for 40 is an initiative to raise $40,000 in one year for a 501(c)(3) organization called Children at Risk. This campaign was created by Nestor Enriquez, who was searching for a meaningful way to ring in his big 4-0 birthday.



Who is Children at Risk?

CHILDREN AT RISK is a non-profit organization that drives change for children through research, education, and influencing public policy. The causes of CAR focus specifically on public education, human trafficking, health and nutrition, and parenting. Through its collaboration and advocacy programs CAR has become a leader who’s priority is to ensure ample resources are available for children and their families to thrive throughout the state of Texas.

Why the 40 for 40 Initiative?

In Nestor's own words, "It's as simple as this: I'm an average person who gets up and goes to work every morning like everybody else. I've been fortunate enough to have love and support from family and friends. Through whatever ups and downs life’s path has presented, the underlying theme has always been to pay it forward. For the last 20 years I've had the opportunity to volunteer, participate, contribute, and fund raise for different organizations. For me this is an opportunity to take my philanthropy to another level.

It’s the opportunity to be a channel in bringing awareness to an organization that really makes a difference in children’s and their families lives while also doing some significant fundraising. Any donation you make to the 40 for 40 initiative would be greatly appreciated, but whether its by financial contribution or by volunteering I want to invite everyone to accompany me on this journey in supporting the 40 for 40 initiative for Children at Risk."

Select 40for40TX as how you heard about the race and a portion of your registration fee will be donated to CHILDREN AT RISK. You may also directly donate to the 40 for 40 campaign for Children at Risk at the button below.
