5th Annual 5K has been Cancelled


We regret to announce that due to low participation numbers, we will be cancelling this Saturday's event. We truly appreciate your support from the bottom of our hearts, and hope that this will not deter you from participating in future Driving Jacks events. 

We will be refunding your registration money this evening, so please keep an eye out for that return in the next coming days. Please do NOT hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns regarding your refund as we want to make sure you receive your money back. It is important to not that our registration provider does not refund processing fees, so we will be returning the registration amount to you. If you would like to discuss, again please don't hesitate to reach out to us. 

It is possible that the event will occur at a later time, and we hope to see your participation then as well! We sincerely appreciate all of your support for Driving Jacks, and can't thank you enough.

Thank you,
Driving Jacks 5K Committee

A few updates

Packet Pickup:
Packet pickup will be held on Friday, April 11th from 4 pm to 9 pm on the first floor of the SFASU Student Center (near the food court by Panda Express) or you can pick up your packet the day of the race starting at 6:30 am.

What to Wear the Day of the 5K
Wear your race t-shirt or other white items of clothing.  We suggest a hat/hair covering to protect you hair and sunglasses or goggles in case powder gets in your eyes.  Chances are, the color powder might not come out of your clothes 100%, especially the longer it sits on your clothes. We will put an explanation on how to get the color out of your clothes (at least most of it) in your bag at packet pickup.

Color War
We will have an all participant color war at the end of the race.  Be prepared to stay because it will be purple vs. lime green! ;)

Raffle Tickets
Raffle tickets are still available for $3/1, $5/2, $10/4, $20/10.  You do NOT have to be present to win.  Raffle tickets can be purchased at the race or by emailing us at  The drawing will be held at 11 am in the Driving Jacks office (3rd floor of the SFASU student center) if you would like to come watch the drawing.  A person who does not have any raffle tickets entered will draw the tickets.  All winners will be called/emailed at that time and their first name, last initial will be added to the website.  We will contact then contact the winners on how to pick up the prizes.  Prizes can be picked up in Nacogdoches, Houston or Dallas.

Team Registration Award
The team with the most registrations (Sleep in and Hit Snooze registrations DO count) will win an award, cookie cake and have their name on the back of the 2015 shirts.  As of right now, there are two teams who are neck and neck, but maybe an underdog will come in to beat them both!  Will it be your team?

See you race day! If you have any more questions, please call Stephanie at 832-257-8527 or email
