Houston, we have The Hip Hop Run. The iconic home of NASA also lends a sound to music with a style all of their own. Legendary performer, Scarface has led a host of amazing artists that put the hip hop scene of this gulf city, on the map. The 4th largest metropolitan in America is also one of the most diverse. Houston has a strong running following, and active community leaders looking for change through positive events. A great combination for The Hip Hop Run.
Legendary DJ Neil Armstrong is the official Hip Hop Run DJ. He will be on the main 1s and 2s for the entire run. After the run make sure to stop by the health and wellness fair where we bring together local vendors, health experts, and wellness pathways that support our communities organically.
