Run. Taco.


Head to Gruene, TX for a 5k walk/run followed by an epic taco competition with Texas chefs. Only want to run? Only want to taco? We've got you.

About Us

We like to say we fight with food.

Palmer only lived to be 47 days old, but the Palmer Nicklaus Foundation was started because of him. Just like Palmer fought, we fight to support the families fighting for their babies by providing meals in the hospital and funding research for a better future.


By participating in the 5k or attending the throwdown, you're helping us support and bring awareness to Palmer's Story, Heterotaxy, and CHD. We'll see you on October 19th. 

The Tacos

Foodies at heart, the tacos are where it's at for us. Come meet different Texas chefs as they throw down to take the title of best taco. We're kicking the day off with a 5k, but if you just want to eat the tacos and skip the whole exercise thing, no judgement here. 


Best taco wins. But really, you're the real winner, since you'll head home full of tacos.

Running and Tacos.

They go together better than you think.

Walk it, run it, dance through the whole thing in your best fiesta getup - it's up to you! 

1 taco? 2 tacos? ALL OF THE TACOS? You eat, tacos compete. It's really that simple (and delicious!)

We're party people, and it's all about having a good time. There's a little bit of something for everyone.
