WHAM Spring Dash

Houston, TX

Join West Houston Assistance Ministries (WHAM) on May 18, 2024 at the 5th Annual Spring Dash 5K/1K to raise money to fight poverty and hunger in West Houston.

Dress in your fanciest cape and superhero outfit and run our 5K/1K, helping us fight against poverty and hunger in Houston.

The WHAM Spring Dash will run along the Westchase District trails. While the route does not utilize any public streets, portions of the trails run alongside busy streets. Please be aware of your surroundings at all times and stay on the trails. Do not run on public streets. View Course Map Here

After your heroic run and fight against poverty (POW!), all superheroes will get to take a break, receive a finisher medal, and enjoy the food, drinks, fun activities, and raffles that will be at the Super Post-Race Party. Super Pets on leashes are also welcome to join in the run and fun.
