Mystery 5K


The Texas Institute of Investigation has created a Mystery! Participants will need to solve it along a 3.1 mile route using clues, riddles, and checkpoints. Some runners may be actors, but you won’t know who!

It’s not necessary to be the fastest runner to win. The winner will use investigative skills and intuition to solve the Mystery! Included is a ton of fun, awards, and of course, cool shirts!
