About

Coach's Big High 5K at Go Wheels Up Festival!

 

Many of us have been positively impacted by a coach, a teacher, or a mentor, who gave selflessly in order to help us reach a better version of ourselves.  Whether it be through sports, school groups, hobbies, we had someone who helped instill a passion in us that stuck with us through adulthood. Coach's Big High 5k gives us all an opportunity to give back, say thanks, do something in remembrance, or join together with others who are grateful for their "Coach".  

 

*We are calling an audible and Go Wheels Up and Coach’s Big High 5k are joining forces to make an even more epic event! We will be moving the location of Coach’s Big High 5k to San Marcos Airport to join in on the Go Wheels Up Festival!   Your race entry now includes entrance into the Go Wheels Up Festival - more info here.

 

We encourage you to invite your coach - high school coach, current mentor, life coach, college advisor, teacher from the past or present - to join you at this first-ever Coach's Big High 5K!  We hope to see you, and your family and your coach or special person, all at the runway to participate in Coach’s Big High 5k at Go Wheels Up!

Only service dogs allowed at this one!

 

Proceeds from this event will go to https://www.thsca.com/foundation

Directions and Parking

It is a long and winding road to get to the parking area once to turn off Airport Hwy (21) into the main entrance of the San Marcos Regional Airport. Stay on the main road and follow the signs to the parking area.  You'll want to walk to the entrance gates from there.  The race area is quite a walk from the parking area.  We will have a semi-secure area where you can drop a bag.  We say "semi-secure" because we are not responsible for anything that happens to your stuff! 

NOTE: This event has a policy on the types of bags you can bring into the gated area.  Be sure to review this: https://gowheelsup.live/what-to-bring/

There is plenty of parking.
