We are excited to announce the 1st ever Extension Festival 5K and Fun Run!

To give a brief explanation of what extension is...

"The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service is a unique education agency with a statewide network of professional educators, trained volunteers, and county offices. It reaches into every Texas county to address local priority needs. Some of our major efforts are in mitigating drought impacts; conserving water use in homes, landscapes, and production agriculture; improving emergency management; enhancing food security; and protecting human health through education about diet, exercise, and disease prevention and management.

AgriLife Extension demonstrates the latest technology and best practices to improve the state’s food and fiber system, which serves all Texas consumers and contributes nine percent of the gross domestic product. Texas 4-H, our primary youth program, engages some 600,000 youth every year in learning projects, leadership development, and community service."

We are home to many groups and organizations you very well may have heard of! Farmer's Market, Master Gardeners, Quilt club, TEEA Ladies, 4-H and much more. We have created this event to bring the community in and get involved in our organization. There is a home for everyone in Extension. 

Our 5K and Fun Run will start at 8. We ask you to come a few minutes early to make sure you get your t shirt. Registration that day will open at 7:30. Pre-register to make sure you will receive a t-shirt.

Our Fun Run will be a C O L O R Fun Run!!! 

We were awarded a GO TEXAN grant, funded by Texas Department of Agriculture, so we are so happy to announce ALL proceeds from this race will go directly to Harrison County 4-H to help elevate the youth in our community! 

We hope you can join us! Even just to cheer the runners on!
