The Jail Break Run is brought to you annually by the police charity - Project Blue. The half-marathon was designed by runners for runners. This USATF certified event takes runners to the top of Baytown's Fred Hartman bridge giving participants breathtaking views of the Houston Ship Channel and Baytown, Texas. Participants can expect great run support, an unparalled SWAG bag, and a Chic Fila sandwich at the end. The Jail Break Run is one of the few races that gives awards and medals to each 5k participant. And, every runner raises money for police officers who face non-service-related illness and injuries. Register now, the half-marathon is limited to 1250 runners, and the 5k is limited to 750 runners.

Thank You Runners and Volunteers

We appreciate your participation in this year's event. Jail Break Run is composed of 100% volunteers. We take off of work to give you the best experience we can. Please understand that our responsiveness is going to be slower after the run. We are all back at work. We will do our best to answer every call, email, and question. Please allow 7 days for a response.

Other Notes:
If you won an award and haven't received it, we will make arrangements to get it to you. Please allow 2-4 weeks. Likewise for virtual racers. If you have an issue with the timer, please email - mary@project-blue.org and we will forward to them.

If you are hoping to pick up a bag for a runner that could not be present on race day, please understand that we do not provide that option. There were early pick ups and race day availability of bags, whether you were running or not. The bags are back in storage now.
