11th Annual Jail Break Run 1/2 Marathon & 5K

The Jail Break Run is Cancelled Due to COVID Challenge  

and Construction on Route

The Jail Break Run is brought to you annually by the police charity - Project Blue. The half-marathon was designed by runners for runners. This USATF certified event takes runners to the top of Baytown's Fred Hartman bridge giving participants breathtaking views of the Houston Ship Channel and Baytown, Texas. Participants can expect great run support, an unparalled SWAG bag, and a Chic Fila sandwich at the end. The Jail Break Run is one of the few races that gives awards, and medals to each 5k participant. And, every runner raises money for police officers who face non-service-related illness and injuries. Stay tuned for future races, we hope to be back.
