Tuesday 5K

Do you want to boost your speed, run a faster 5k, and improve your overall fitness? Tuesday 5K is an inclusive community of runners committed to running or walking a 5k Time Trial every week. All paces welcome! Our goal is to inspire, motivate, and challenge each other. You can participate virtually wherever you are in the world, or run “live” if you’re in Sugar land (Covid-19 guidelines apply). You are ready!

Local runners can use the Map below – start at the Pawm Springs Dog Park (facing University Blvd), run clockwise around the lower loop, continue straight towards the upper loop running clockwise around the lake, and continue back to the dog back, this time running anti-clockwise back to the start. Ask if these directions are unclear!
