11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
5001 Bellaire Blvd, Bellaire 77401

Parking will be available along Third Street, Linden Street, or in front of the Church offices on Bellaire Blvd. Packet Pickup will be held in the Gathering Space in the back of the Sanctuary. Please be aware the elementary school behind the church will be dismissing from 3-4 p.m. so the streets will be busy with traffic and parked cars. We encourage everyone to pick up packets before 3 p.m. or after 4 p.m. on either day.

RACE DAY PACKET PICKUP will begin at 6:30 a.m. and end at 7:45 a.m. The Registration/PPU tent will be located inside Sam Houston Park. Race Day lines tend to be long so please arrive early. We appreciate your patience as our volunteers work to get runners checked in as quickly as possible.

Race Day Parking: Metered street parking in Downtown is plentiful and accessible. Surface lot parking is available at the Houston Chronicle Parking Garage at 719 Prairie for $10/car. Please plan enough time to find a parking spot and walk to the race site. We encourage participants to carpool if possible.


The Trafigura Run for the House will be held rain or shine. Cancellation will occur only in the instance of flooding, thunderstorms, ice, street closures determined by The City of Houston, or other unforeseeable act of God. If the event is cancelled, registered participants will be notified by email. Notifications to the Ronald McDonald website and social media feeds will also be made. Ronald McDonald House Houston is truly grateful for ALL who support the event in any manner. Due to the fundraising nature of the event, Ronald McDonald House Houston is unable to refund event sponsors, race registrants, or donors in the instance of cancellation.

Register by 11/19 to guarantee your packet is received by race day. VR registrations after 11/19 cannot guarantee delivery by Race Day. For more information on VR, contact us.
