Corporate Involvement

Is your company interested in getting involved in the ASK 5K & Fun Walk? This event is a great opportunity to bring together employees in a teambuilding exercise that also benefits the community. Sponsorship is another great option to show support!

Starting Line & 5K Course:

Participants will line up outside of the Cross Timbers Roofing Party Pavilion located on the 1st base side of the stadium to take off through area neighborhoods and make their way back into the Diamond to receive their medal at home plate. Water stops and spirit stations line the way.  

The ASK 5K & Fun Walk course is great for setting a PR for fastest time or for having the most fun! Runners, walkers, and strollers are welcomed.
