Providence to Pearl 5K Walk/Run

With Spring already here in South Texas, and Fiesta 2013 right around the corner, Mayor Julián Castro recently announced this year’s Fiesta 2013 tagline–“Green. Fit. Friendly.”  What better way to keep pace with the Fiesta theme than by participating in  Providence Catholic School’s Providence to Pearl 5K Run/Walk (P2P) on April 20,2013? The 6th annual Providence to Pearl 5K weaves along one of the most beautiful spots in San Antonio–the Riverwalk Museum Extension–which coincidently is right across the street from Providence.

5K logoI walked my first P2P last year and really enjoyed it. In addition to the beautiful scenery, there was music and a dance performance by some of the Providence students, and the Pearl’s Saturday Farmers Market. at the finish. Lots of people–lots of fun–lot of fitness.

“We hope to beat our record number of runners this year,” said Elise Denoux, Providence Athletic Director. “There will be a competitive run, and a noncompetitive Run/Walk, so every level of runner can have a great experience.”
