Runners, walkers and strollers are encouraged to race eight laps (approximately 5k) for the eighth Wonder of the World, at their own route, schedule, and pace.
The first 500 race registrants will receive free limited-edition Astrodome swag.

Live Onsite Racing

The first 200 registrants will have special access to complete onsite laps around the Astrodome at NRG Park.

Social Distancing & COVID-19

As we enter into the vaccination phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, medical experts still advise that we have a way to go before we achieve herd immunity and can safely resume pre-pandemic activities. In the meantime, you can remain vigilant in protecting yourself against the coronavirus by continuing to wear face masks when in public spaces, practice social distancing of at least six feet, limit your touching of surfaces, and frequently use hand sanitizer or soap and water to keep your hands clean.

While the Governor of Texas has lifted mandatory mask orders and capacity limits, most businesses are still requiring face masks to enter and enforcing reduced capacity. Familiarize with your destination’s policies ahead of time and please respect their public safety precautions.


Registration starts at $30, which includes a finisher medal. Other options range to $60 and also include bib and an official shirt. Register now or learn more.
