The Course

Starting in the shadow of the majestic Alamodome, the Alamo 5K (3.1 miles) route mirrors much of the Alamo 10,000 route through beautiful downtown San Antonio, passing numerous historic landmarks before finishing back INSIDE the Alamodome.  It’s a flat, fast course and provides a great opportunity to shoot for a PR!  The route will be USATF Certified, as it has been in the past.  There will be one fluid replenishment station on the 5K course (see course map). The Alamo 5K is chipped timed. The Alamo 5K is its own event, starting approximately 15 minutes after the start of the Alamo 10,000.

The Rules

For safety reasons and the fact that USATF insurance does not cover bicycles, skateboards, scooters, pets, roller skates, inline skates or roller blades, they will NOT be permitted on the course. Baby joggers and strollers will be allowed in the Alamo 5K (but NOT in the Alamo Half), however you will be asked to start at the back of the 'pack', insure your child is secured in your stroller/jogger and not run/walk with others in such a way as to impede other participants on the course. We also ask that any children seated in joggers have a helmet on and secured.  Participants running with baby joggers will need to pass through a separate security screening process before entering the secured, gated starting area.

The Alamo 5K course will remain open for 1 hour and 30 minutes, from when the last runner has crossed the START line during the Official Start. Where a portion of the course overlaps with the end sections of the Alamo Half and Alamo 10,000, that section of the 5K course may remain open longer than other non-overlapping sections. The rolling closure of the non-overlapping sections of the course is based on an approximate pace of 25 minutes per mile.

Entry fees are non-refundable.
NOTE: The Alamo 5K has a 'cap' and will be limited to the first 3,000 people to register.

Active Duty Military and their dependents can receive a 20% discount on entry to the Alamo 5K. Please read the qualifications for use and details to be able to utilize the discount during online registration.
