Helotes 0.5k Challenge



October 24th coming to a neighborhood near you!
This is a “race” for those who would rather check their Instagram and watch TV, drink beer and eat pizza–not get up early and run or bike. We have other priorities than working out. This is our race!

Days Until October 24, 2020









The Helotes 0.5k Challenge

This event sponsored by the Helotes Chamber of Commerce will support the Helotes Chamber Foundation as well as  the Helotes Humane Society with the funds raised from this event. So whether you are a workout junkie or a full time slouch or somewhere in between this event is perfect for you!!
