Race Information

Race & Event Details

When and where is the 2019 race?

The 2019 Run4Elise HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED due to severe weather concerns and will be held on SATURDAY, MAY 4, 2019, at Gateway Church off Blessed Way in Southlake, Texas. Don’t live nearby? No problem! Participants can still show their support by signing up to run or walk virtually from anywhere!

Is this an official timed 5K?

Yes! The 5K is a USTAF certified course around scenic Gateway Church. It includes a fast-downhill finish.

Can anyone do the fun run/walk?

You bet! The 1-mile fun run and walk offers the same downhill finish around the east side of the church. Strollers are welcome.

What else is offered at the event?

The Run4Elise is designed for the whole family! There will be refreshments, music, sponsor tables, free event photos, and water safety education. We will also present our 2019 Elise Cerami Memorial Scholarship winners, as well as recognize our participants in the 100 Lifeguard Challenge. Race awards will be presented following the 5K.
