Indian Spring Park,
The Carry a Jerry 10K & 5K was created to raise awareness about the water crisis in Africa by giving race participants the option to see what it feels like to carry a jerry can of water during the race. All proceeds benefit Parental Care Ministries, a non-profit organization whose goal is to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of over 1,500 orphaned children in Uganda. The event is hosted by Baylor University’s Students Improving Global Health Together (SIGHT).
The Carry a Jerry 10k & 5k courses will begin at Indian Spring Park, in front of the Suspension Bridge, and continue along the Brazos. 5k participants will turn around under the Herring Ave bridge and head back toward Indian Spring Park. 10kers will cross the Herring Ave Bridge, and then make a left and head into Brazos Park East, completing a loop and heading back toward Herring Ave. After crossing, they will continue back to the Suspension Bridge to finish as the 5kers did.
The course is generally flat, except for an inclined path leading onto the Herring Ave Bridge, and all parts are paved.
10kers will have 2 water stations and 5kers 1. The first water station will be near the 5k turn-around. The second will be located in Brazos East Park.
Note that chip timing will be provided for both courses.
