The District 4 Heroes 5k is actually part of a series put on by the city of San Antonio. Each on of the districts puts on a race each year as part of the city's FitPass program. Each of these races are FREE and chip timed. If you sign up early enough, you even can get a free unisex tshirt (Cotton). I usually request that I don't receive a shirt, as they tend to run rather large and reach almost my knees.
The race itself has a great deal amount of parking, free booths of giveaways, and there is a truck that will give measure your BMI and Blood pressure. The course is relatively flat and easy, though the scenery isn't the best. Best part is that the first 1000 people across the finish line receive a medal at a free race! It's even a nice one, being made of medal and sponsored by a local car dealership.
My only complaint is that these events are not well advertised. I usually only know about them through the local running community or through a facebook event thats not updated or answered at all. But hey, its a free race with a tshirt, timing chip, and a medal! Keep your eyes peeled for these races, because they are well worth it.
