17th Annual Lucky Trails event revving up for March 13-15

Sponsored by the City of Seabrook, organizer Running Alliance Sport (RAS) challenges runners with three days of races in the 17th annual Seabrook Lucky Trails Event Friday, Saturday and Sunday, March 13-15. A Seabrook tradition, there are distances for every runner, including Kids K, Quarter Marathon, two Half Marathons, a ¾ Marathon, two 5Ks, a Two-Person Half marathon Relay, and Four-Person Marathon Relay and of course the signature event, the Lucky Trails Marathon.

Affectionately known as the “Luckiest Marathon in Texas” (and arguably the easiest), the Seabrook Lucky Trails Marathon, run over scenic trails at Seabrook’s Meador Park includes opportunities for all levels of fitness and supports the community by benefiting survivors of domestic abuse through TheBridge Over Troubled Waters, a non-profit organization that assists survivors of domestic and/or sexual violence in eight area communities.

The kick-off race for the event is Friday’s 5K, and Kids K run on the Trails, starting at 5:45 p.m. with a time limit of 1 hour and 15 minutes. The Kids K will start at 5:30 p.m.

Marathon walkers have the option of an early start at 5:30 a.m. on Saturday, with the official Marathon start at 7:15 a.m. Also starting at 7:15 a.m. On Saturday, the Four-Person Relay and the ¾ Marathon race. A Half Marathon starts at 7:30 a.m., and the course closes at 2 p.m.

Sunday the event wraps with the Quarter Marathon, Half Marathon and Two-Person Relay starting at 7:15 a.m., and the second 5K of the weekend starting at 7:30 a.m.

All registrants receive a gender-specific technical shirt and other items and all finishers – including relay and 5K participants – receive an event-specific, custom-designed medal. Expect friendly volunteers, a St. Patrick’s Day-themed costume contest and a wonderful after-party

All races start and end at Rex Meador Park, located in Seabrook at 2100 Meyer Road.
