Runners, we wouldn't be able to complete our puzzle piece without you!

With autism becoming the fastest-growing serious developmental disability in the US with 1 in 59 children diagnosed, Autism Speaks is looking to raise awareness while having a great time at the 4th Annual Houston 8k & 1k Kid's Fun Run on Saturday, April 27, 2019 at Sugar Land Town Square.

So lace up those running shoes for an event that means so much more than just 4.97 miles. Recruit friends and family for your team and get ready to run, walk or virtual run for a great cause.

Teams: Teams take on the spirit of the day as family, friends and co-workers join together to have fun and help raise awareness for autism. Organize friends, family, schools, place of worship, community organization, or get your company involved! Choose a team name and captain or co-captains. Each team member (adult and child) is asked to set a minimum fundraising goal of $159 (for the 1 in 59), but we always encourage more!


Join us for a fun filled morning of running and racing for Autism Speaks. The 8k course will start at Sugar Land Town Square and wind its way through the roads of Sugar Land. All runners will receive finisher medal.

1k Kid’s Fun Run

A fun way to have your kids join in on the race day experience. The Kids K will stay within the Sugar Land Town Square. All kids will receive a finisher's medal. Children will also enjoy many fun activities after their race to keep them busy as family members complete the 8k.
