Chuck Norris personally invites you to run or walk his inaugural 5k
(and we don’t suggest telling Chuck Norris “no”)
The inaugural CForce Chuck Norris 5K SOLD OUT in record time, but fear not! If you missed out, you can still register for the CForce Chuck Norris Virtual 5K and get the same awesome swag! Click HERE for registration details.
Join us on May 4th at 9 am for this epic event, brought to you by Chuck’s CForce Premium Artesian Water! But this is no ordinary 5K. As part of this event we are also going to attempt to set the world record for the most people in one place to be dressed as Chuck Norris.
The race will take place at the George H. W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in College Station, Texas.
Your race registration includes a custom Chuck Norris style t-shirt, a fake beard, and a sweet belt buckle. All similar to what Chuck would wear, and all part of our world record attempt for the morning of the race.
If you really want to get your inner Chuck Norris on, you can create your own look alike costume from one of Chuck’s many epic moments on screen! We will have a costume contest immediately after the race. Prizes will be given for:
Best male Chuck Norris costume
Best female Chuck Norris costume
Best kid Chuck Norris costume (12 and under)
This race is family friendly, and we encourage you to bring everyone, including the little ones. How cute will little Billy look dressed up like Chuck Norris?! Strollers are welcome, but no four legged friends.
The race will kick off (get it?) at 9 am, right after a few words of encouragement from the man, the myth, the legend himself….Chuck Norris!
And yes, Chuck Norris will be waiting for you at the finish line to greet you with an authentic Chuck Norris high five (Please note: organizers are not responsible for any injuries that might occur from allowing Chuck Norris to give you a high five).
